The Orleans family owned the estate from at least the 1650s and King Louis-Philippe used the house as a Royal summer residence during his reign from 1830 to 1848 twice entertaining England's Queen Victoria on her visits to the Continent. The chateau was also home of the exiled Brazilian Royal family, Princess Isabel having married Prince Gaston, Count of Eu who was a grandson of Louis-Philippe. These chairs are printed with inventory numbers and stamped with EU surmounted by a crown as inventoried by the French Royal palaces.
