The Palais de Compiègne, a royal residence built for Louis XV and restored by Napoleon, was one of three seats of royal government, along with Versailles and Fontainebleau.

Even before the château was constructed, Compiègne was the preferred seasonal residence for French monarchs, primarily for hunting given its proximity to Compiègne Forest. It was a favored setting for festivities during the Second Empire under Napoleon III and his wife Eugénie.
