The Château du Martroy

The Château du Martroy was built during the 18th century and extended in the 19th century, and it was the home of a number of prominent figures who rubbed shoulders with Napoleon I during the First Empire.

The Château du Martroy, which is listed in the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments, was built during the Age of Enlightenment on the foundations of a 16th-century estate, and was then extended in the 19th century. It is located in the commune of Chauconin-Neufmontiers, near Meaux in Seine-et-Marne. The current owner is a descendant of many leading figures alongside Napoleon I: Armand de Caulaincourt, Pierre Daru, Louis Nicolas Davout d'Auerstaedt, Jean-Baptiste de Champagny.
