Castle of Amboise
This former estate of the Duke of Choiseul and the Duke of Penthièvre, which had been confiscated by the nation in 1792, was offered by Napoleon to former Consul Roger Ducos.
The latter, not having the means to restore all, destroyed much of the building from 1806 to 1810.
Later, King Louis-Philippe I will inherit the castle through his mother.
