In memory of the visit he made to chateau Chenonceau onth july , Louis XIV, many years later, offered his uncle Duke of Vendome, his portrait by Rigaud - in an extraordinary frame by Lepautre, composed simply of four enormous pieces of wood.

On the renaissance fireplace, the Salamander and the Stoat bring back the memory of François I and Queen Claude of France.
