Photographer's Note

This is a fragment of the room belonging and dedicated to Louise of Lorraine. It reflects the grief of the wife of Henry III, who became widow at the age of 36. As her husband was assassinated, she fell into a state of depression and spent the remainder of her days in mourning clothes amidst somber tapestries at the Chenonceau palace. The traditional mourning colour of French queens was white, and she was thereby called "The White Queen".

This room differs a lot from the rest of the castle. It is dark and depressing. I imagine Louise praying on this kneeler for the soul of her beloved husband.
