Photographer's Note

The history of the Château de Maintenon, listed as Historical Monument, dates back to the 13th century. On February 27th 1674, Françoise d'Aubigné, the widow of the poet Scarron and future Marquise de Maintenon, bought the domain; she enlarged and embellished both the Château and its perspective, before she became, in 1684, the secret wife of Louis XIV.
