First Antechamber of Madame de Maintenon

Rather sadly little - or rather nothing - remains of the interior Madame de Maintenon would have known. As can be seen from the photo underneath the room is practically stripped of ornaments and boiserie especially compared to the elaborately decorated apartments throughout the palace. Still the fact that Madame de Maintenon was even awarded an entire set of apartments is a clear sign of her favour with the King.
