Apartments assigned to Axel Fersen

During the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV this was the chambers of the first valet. It was these rooms that Count Fersen stayed in when he visited Versailles - Louis XVI had his first valet housed elsewhere. Count Fersen himself even noted in a letter to his friend Josephine on 3 March 1787: "Plan of living up stairs". Also, his rooms are located above the Queen's private apartments.
