The Duke's bedroom
This room is furnished with a military bed and a cylinder desk by cabinetmakers Jean-Michel and Guillaume Grohé, a gift from King Louis-Philippe to his son in 1847. The room is decorated with several paintings and miniatures depicting the Duke of Aumale’s family, including a portrait of his mother signed by Baron François Gérard. Two uniforms exhibited sum up the different aspects of the Duke of Aumale’s personality: the general’s uniform and the green uniform worn by members of the Institut de France. This room remains unchanged since 1897.
