Madame de Maintenon’s Apartment

Madame de Maintenon’s Apartment is situated on the first floor of the old fortified entranceway, in the Porte Dorée, and is named in memory of its illustrious former occupant and the events which took place there in the 17th century.

Although its other décor dates from the 17th century, its fine furnishings date from the late 17th and 18th centuries, including seats from Marie Antoinette’s rooms at the Château de Saint Cloud. The collection was curated by Louis-Philippe I who wished to commemorate the signing of the Edict of Fontainebleau revoking the Edict of Nantes, which took place in Madame de Maintenon’s office.
