Description

A historic residency.

The origins of residency at Château de Compiègne is intertwined with that of the monarchy and goes back to the Merovingian dynasty. After several changes of location, the royal residence found its final location in 1380: King Charles V built a fortress that underwent successive extensions.

The Château de Compiegne went through a radical renovation between 1751 and 1788, endowing a most elegant neoclassical style upon the château.

Many historic treaties were signed in the building, which today houses the Musée du Second Empire (Museum of the Second Empire) and the Musée de la Voiture (Museum of the car).
