Geography Gallery

This gallery is not seen by the every-day public and is one of those unseen hallways in the maze of private apartments behind the official ones. Louis XV had geographical maps and timelines on the walls of this small and private gallery which is why the gallery has been given its name. For a time they were inhabited by Marie-Josephe de Saxe when she could no longer live in the Dauphine's apartments on the ground floor. Later on Louis XVI would use this gallery to reach his own apartments.
