Gallery of the Columns

Louis-Philippe had this room created as a part of the preparations of his son's wedding which naturally means that it was not a part of the castle that either Louis XIV, Louis XV or Louis XVI would have seen. It is located right beneath the ballroom and was given its name due to the large twin columns adorning the walls. Also, Louis-Philippe had several Renaissance features incorporated into the design such as the square edgings on the ceilings.
