The dauphine’s private study The present condition corresponds to the period when Louis XV’s son (Louis, Dauphin of France) and his second wife Marie-Josèphe de Saxe lived here between 1747 and 1765. This is where the little dauphin, the future Louis XVII, and his sister Madame Royale lived when the Revolution broke out.

The dauphine’s drawing room The dauphine’s apartment comes after that of the dauphin and is visited in the opposite direction of the normal order of the succession of rooms, in other words: first and second antechambers, drawing room, bedroom and private study. Marie-Josèphe de Saxe gathered the ladies in her entourage for conversation or games in the drawing room, whose dimensions date back to the period when it served as the guardroom for Louis XIV’s son.
The King’s interior cabinet. Louis XV often came here, and it was from the balcony of this room that, with tears in his eyes, he watched the departure of the funeral procession taking away Mme de Pompadour, one winter evening in 1764. Château de Versailles
