We'll remind you Comte. I haven't seen photos of Saint Cloud before, only water colors.

Lovely! It's remarkably well preserved, are all the items there authentic from her time? And do you know who the portrait of the little boy in the last photo is?

I was wondering, just before the establishment of the First Empire, who lived in Fontainebleu? I remember reading in a [fictional] book that it was a relation of Josephine? :help:

Thanks Comte, those pictures are lovely. The model is incredible. Saint-Cloud was a beautiful chateau.

oh yes it was lovely, I am so sad all of those beautiful Items and furnishings were destroyed in a fire. It is a very charming and co-ordinated room I am thinking it is maroon. It is the biggest house this or any town would ever see. How wonderfully they built back then. and extravagantly. It has a Moat?

It is not as big as it looks.
No it has fountains and an Orangerie...

The furniture in those photos looks to me like 2nd Empire, not Louis XVI. However, the paneling looks original. What marvelous photos from a lost world!

They are of Emeror Napoleon III.
I should say it HAD an orangerie.

I was walking in that lost world tonight....what an atmospheric place it is on a muggy summer evening in Paris, deserted except for the tourists who don't come to the gardens of a demolished castle in the evening. And yet enough remains of the terraces and balustrades and fountains to give an idea of its' former splendour. I felt the Queen's presence at every corner as I strolled up the long flights of stone steps, stood at the stone balustrade overlooking the Seine or walked through the gardens behind where the Château was. Its' a lonely, poigant atmospheric place. The Queen was very taken with it after having been given the use of the Château, as a place for the Dauphin to go which was supposed to be better for his health. She had her famous meeting in the gardens with Mirabeau there, and Fersen visited her there from his temporary lodgings in Auteuil, after the first Tuileries incident at Easter.

If I ever get to revisit France, this is a chateau I'd like to visit.
