The King's Bedchamber
The Queen's BedchamberApparently this room appears today as it did when Marie Antoinette slept here. Shown here is only the area of the bed cordoned off by the gilded railing.
Elaborate bed canopy and gilded balustrade
Salon d'Apollon, formerly Chambre du Roi and the salle du Trône (Throne Room)
