Apartment of the Duchesse d'Angoulême

1) Bathroom
This was also used by the Comtesse de Provence as her Cabinet de la Meridienne - corresponding to that of Marie Antoinette.

2) Unknown
I do not know what this room was used for but there is an image of it nonetheless.

3) Toilet
Build in the same style as the previous room this was simply a toilet. It is built in the same style as the remaining royal toilets with a wooden seat.

4) Unknown

5) Library or Dining Room
During Louis XVI this was used a private dining room for the intimate dinners of the King and his family. Here, the king would dine with his queen and often in the company of his sister, Madame Élisabeth. This offered a welcome respite from the completely public dinners the family were otherwise made to endure. The chairs in the bottom picture belonged to Madame Élisabeth who had them in her wardrobe.

6) Unknown

7) Interior Cabinet
This interior cabinet had the luxury of a small stove to warm it up with; the stove is decorated with blue ceramic tiles.
