  18. Josephine's bedroom looks almost understated compared to Napolean's and Marie Antoinette's, not to mention the other rooms.

  19. OK. I'm feeling very nostalgic now. My family and I lived in Paris for many years and got to visit Fontainebleau numerous times. Words cannot describe the beauty! Every time we toured the castle, we found ourselves with our mouths open. I remember that when our boys got chickenpox at the same time, we took them to the forest to play where they would not be contagious to anyone and could burn up that energy. Thank you for the photos and the memories.
