Castle of Fontainebleau
Napoleon came regularly to this castle that he enjoyed the highest degree.
He received there Pope Pius VII in November 1804 before his coronation (and later kept him at Fontainebleau as a prisoner from June 1812 to January 1814!), or King Charles IV of Spain in May 1808.
He signed his abdication on April 6, 1814 in this castle, and bid farewell to his Guard on April 20.
