NOTES: The frescoes, designed by Primaticcio, were actually carried out by Niccolo dellÔÇÖAbbate and date from the 1550s. Hunting scenes are depicted on each side of the chimney breast. The chimneypiece was designed by Philibert de l'Orme.
NOTES: The drawing at right is inscribed Sedan. Sedan could relate to a new town hall built in Sedan circa 1613. Alternatively it could relate to the Palais des Prince, a part of the fortress of Sedan, begun in 1611.
