So are you saying the apartments were opened JUST for public viewing at what it was probably like to live as a royal in those days? Hmmm not fair!

It was basically as in 1789-91: The Tuileries, and Saint Cloud in the summer.

It depends of the King/Emperor
Renaissance times: Chambord, Amboise, Blois, Fontainebleau http://www.musee-chateau-fontainebleau.fr/
Anne d'Autriche: le Palais Royal (to Monsieur, Louis XIV's brother) http://www.insecula.com/musee/M0043.html
Le Louvre (until Louis XIV who left it beacause of the Fronde")
Until the Revolution (1789-93): Mainly in Versailles http://www.chateauversailles.fr/en/, but also Saint-Cloud burnt in 1870 http://saintcloud.histoire.free.fr/histoir002.html (in French), The Palace of Tuileries burnt during the Commune in 1871 destroyed few years after palace of Luxembourg(1615-1793) which is now the Sénat. The Luxembourg became in 1817 a gallery for "living" artits (in spite of the Louvre).http://www.senat.fr/visite/index.html  http://www.insecula.com/musee/M0124.html

After the Révolution Versailles and The Louvre never became royal residences.The Louvre little by little became a museum. In 1837 The king Louis-Philippe decided to open Versailles as a museum of "All the glories of France" (with the famous gallery of battles).
Napoléon I: La Malmaison (actually it's Joséphine's own residence) http://www.chateau-malmaison.fr/
  Le Grand Trianon in Versailles http://www.chateauversailles.fr/en/121_The_Grand_Trianon.php

Napoléon III: Espacially the Tuileries
Compiègne http://www.musee-chateau-fontainebleau.fr/
Chateau de Saint-Germain-en-Laye (1862: museum of national antiquities by Napoléon III) http://www.musee-antiquitesnationales.fr/pages/page_id18203_u1l2.htm
Le Palais de l'Elysée (see bellow for the link)


Well, I think I don't forget something... I quote the most important at least...

Thanks Lisa

Surely the last two were their main residences, though. I don't think they used Versailles much. :-/

Yes, you are right. Versailles was the official residence, but they used it only for receptions, etc. They certainly did not lived there every days!

Besides the residence mentioned for Louise Philippe he also used: the Palais Royal in Paris, the château of Neuilly-sur-Seine, unfortunately destroyed during 1848, and the château of La Ferte Vidame/

I apologize for beeing so discourteous and pedant, but ... "my heart belongs to my History" and... some names ARE History... so, to elena_maria_vidal :

-we (french people) say (and we write) Chàteau des Tuileries (not de Tuileries) (sorry I cannot dial the right french "accent circonflexe" on the "a" because my computer is an italian one)
-the Henri you tell of in this thread is Henri Charles Ferdinand Marie Dieudonné de Bourbon, comte d'Artois, etc (Artois is a sovereignty name, eventually a title, not a family name and Wikipedia is often wrong) called until the death of King Charles X his grandfather  duc de Bordeaux, then called comte de Chambord (not Cambord) and later Henri V . Anyway, I want to say you that I formerly knew and then forgot the fact of the little garden, so thank you so much...  (Henri was born posthumous and had a sad youth for many reasons)

And now to bell_the_cat :

you tell about Place du Carrousel (not Caroussel), and to try to obtain your perdon here are the meanings of the word: 1/ a parade with horses "dancing" with traditional movements and attitudes of old equestrian art on the sound of music or/and shoutings of their riders... It was a marvellous and moving scene that kings,  princes and sometimes ambassadors gave to Paris'people for weddings, births, entries...        2/ the place were such exhibitions acted.
Now the word has 2 other senses : 3/ a merry-go-round  and 4/ cars or planes, etc, moving round

I know I deserve all your angryness because I am pedant and I write so BAD english...

C-C

Interestingly, the Pavillon de Flore, the only part of the Tuileries to survive (the southernmost corner overlooking the Seine), contained the apartments of Madame Elisabeth and the Princesse de Lamballe - on different floors of course- during 1789-92.

Mon cher M. Canard,

You can make some adjustments to your computer to use the French arrangement on your keyboard that will allow you to use the various letters needed to write French words correctly. On my own computer, I simply go to the image of a small keyboard at the bottom of my screen and click on the keyboard that I want to use: EN, DE, FR, RU, PT and ES. When I click on FR, I have use of these letters: é, è, ç, à, ù and if I had greater number of keys than the standard English key board I would have additional letters to use such as these: ê, ï, î, ë, ê, â.

I do have an unrelated question for you though, when I learned French we still wrote the word 'sœur' with the letter œ is this letter still used in the French language or has it been dropped?

David

According to the National Comitee For the Restoration of the Tuileries if and when the palace is restored the state apartments will be restored to what they looked like when Napoleon III was in residence in 1870 while the rest of the palace could be given off to art galleries for the louvre's collections to expand, ministries' offices, a very own museum deticated to the Tuileries, and An observation area at the top of the Salle des Marechaux's dome. So as you can see it would place a place for both the public and for the government.

Mr Canard
to Mr Pritchard

Dear friend, I have been for quite a year really far from the marvellous A.P.Forum.... and from his skilled administrators (for many important reasons). I am turning now! with new interests...
Answering to you, the "o-e" letter is still available... for people writing pure french language. On computer's writings, the letter is vanishing.

Friendly

Mr Canard
