Small apartments

The Duke and the Duchess of Aumale's private apartments (otherwise known as the Small Apartments) are located on the ground floor of the Small Château, and overlook the large balcony above the moats. The Duke of Aumale had it made in 1845-1846 by romantic painter and decorator Eugene Lami shortly after his wedding with the Princess of Salerne (Lami had already decorated the apartments of the Prince Royal at the Tuileries). This is the only royal or Prince apartment of the Monarchy of July that was passed on to us in a pristine state.
