    Abbey Palace of Royaumont, near Chantilly, France
    Abbey Palace of Royaumont, near Chantilly, France
    Abbey Palace of Royaumont near Chantilly, is a late 18th-century mansion designed by Louis Le Masson for the Abbot of Royaumont, Henri Eléonore Le Cornut de Balivière, chaplain of Louis XVI. The actual abbey was destroyed in the French Revolution, but the Abbey Palace survived.

    The mansion changed hands until it was eventually bought by Baron and Baroness Eugène Fould-Springer in 1923. Their grandson Nathaniel de Rothschild immediately set out to restore the "magnificent property" and give it a "soul."

    The Fould-Springers carefully selected works of art, furniture, lighting, clocks and ceramics that reflected the stately beauty of the house.

    Although Abbey Palace hasn't been regularly lived in by the descendants of Baron and Baroness Fould-Springer since the late 1980s, it remains a pride of the family. Rothschild says in the Christies auction catalogue, that he long looked for the best way of preserving the integrity of the property, a solution that he has now found. It is to become a high-quality seminar centre. This requires modernisation and, as a result, the contents of the Abbey Palace were sold at auction in September 2011 raising over €7M.

    This video was produced by Christies as part of a guide to the contents of the house.
    • Élie de Rothschild was the younger son of Baron Robert Philippe de Rothschild and Nelly Beer. His father was a partner in de Rothschild Frères with his cousin, Baron Edouard Alphonse de Rothschild. His mother was the daughter of Edmond Beer, a great-great-niece of the composer Giacomo Meyerbeer, and elder sister of Marie-Louise Beer, who married Lionel Nathan de Rothschild from the English branch of the Rothschild family. Élie and his siblings (Diane, Alain and Cécile) were brought up at Château de Laversine, near Chantilly, and at the family mansion at Avenue de Marigny near the Elysée Palace in Paris.

      The House of Rothschild are documented in this article on Wikipedia.

    The Town Hall 
    • In 1942 Liliane married her childhood sweetheart Elie de Rothschild, younger son of Baron Robert de Rothschild, a partner of de Rothschild Frères. The marriage took place by proxy, since Baron Elie was at the time a PoW at Colditz Castle, from where he had written to Liliane with his proposal.

      Liliane's mother (her father had by then died) was uneasy about her daughter taking the name Rothschild at a time when France was crawling with the Gestapo, but the marriage went ahead. Baron Elie gave his pledge at Colditz on October 7 1941; Liliane gave hers at Cannes Town Hall on April 7 1942, with a photograph of the groom on the table in front of her and an empty chair at her side.
