Chateau de Chambord Chambord castle is an enormous, stunning castle of Renaissance style, which is typically the number one French castle among visitors. Chambord castle was built to serve as a hunting lodge for Francis I. It was a castle of many kings: Francis I spent a fortune to build his dream castle, after which it became home to Henri II (his son), Louis XIII, Gaston d’Orleans, Louis XV, his step-father, and the former king of Poland Stanislas Leszczynski. In 1809, the Emperor Napoleon gave it to Marshal Berthier and in 1821 it was sold to the Duke of Bordeaux. In the late 19th century the Duke of Parma inherited it and in 1932 the French government bought the castle and restored its original appearance. It is now a National Historical Monument, and since 1981 it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. People believe the castle was designed by Leonardo da Vinci, although definitely the famous double staircase (helix staircase) was created by him. Chambord castle has 440 rooms, 335 fireplaces, 12 staircases and 70 main staircase laid out over an area of 200,000 sq ft. On top of this amazing castle, there is 32km wall around the huge park which covers 440 hectares. It is located between the untamed royal river and the wild woodlands, which is home to many boar and deer. It is national hunting reserve, which is open and free to all. This castle become to me inspiration on creation of this painting.
