An art book to relive the history of the French kings

Justifying the title of « mansion of centuries, veritable residence of kings”, that Napoleon the 1st had given to it, the castle of Fontainebleau offers the memory of more than 700 years of presence of French sovereigns, from Louis VII’s coronation in 1137, to the fall of the Second Empire in 1870. A grand and illustrious place, just like the crowned heads and artists of genius who shaped it and stayed there.
