Throne

From the visitor's guide:

 

"This was the king's bedroom under the Anciien Regime, the most important room of the palace. Napoleon I transformed the room into the Thrown Room in 1808. The ceremonies of presentation and oath-taking normally were held here on Sundays. During a visit in 1810, Madame de Montesquiou was appointed Governess of the future King of Rome."
