He bade farewell to the Imperial Guard during the first exile to the island of Elba on April 20, 1814. Napoleon I and Fontainebleau have a long shared history that continues today with one of the most beautiful museums dedicated to the history of the emperor. If the castle of Renaissance style was the hunting residence of the kings of France and notably of François 1st, it remains inseparable of Napoleon who established there its court since 1804. Of this glorious past remains many vestiges: furniture, objects d ' art, goldsmith, weapons ...

You will be able to admire a collection of some 650 objects exposed on 700m2 in the wing Louis XV of the castle of Fontainebleau. These retrace the dazzling career of the Emperor and his family through painted and carved portraits, weapons, dishes, furniture, clothes, works of art. Among these treasures are the cradle of the King of Rome - the son of Napoleon I and Marie Louise of Austria - the white satin tunic adorned with gold embroidery that the Emperor donned during his coronation in 1804 or the black beaver felt hat he is supposed to have worn in the first months of his exile in St. Helena.
