The Surprising discoveries of the Compiègne Palace.

The Imperial palace of Compiègne's heritage is tied to the middle ages, and is the source of some of the greatest historical French figures including numerous kings such as Clovis, Charles The Bald, Louis XI, and even Louis XIV. Each sovreign adding his personal touch to the structure. But it was primarily Napoleon (the first, or prèmier) who restored the palace to its original splendor, and dedicated to the Empress Eugenie.
