Fontainebleau

DSC04550This is the Chateau from the Gardens Side.  Better view than from the street.  Fontainebleau is located about one hour out of Paris.  Well worth the visit.  We drove there from Melun.  Interesting history of the family who ruled here.  All of the young princes and princesses died early, while one old matriarch lived until her late 80′s.  Rumor was that she poisoned them all to keep her power.
