Summary The Chat́eau of Fontainebleau epitomizes the grandeur and opulence of the French monarchy, conjuring images of courtly excesses and royal intrigues. A good portion of 17th- and 18th-century French history examined in this program lies hidden within its walls. Cameras move through rooms including the Salon de Jour, Baptistry, and Royal Apartments and examine various works of art and decorative appointments introduced by French monarchs from Fran̨cois I and Louis XIV to Napoleon Bonaparte. Expert commentary relates each feature, and the building itself, to specific periods in French history, and to the political intrigues and private dalliances of Fontainebleau's royal occupants.
