In 1775, the count of Artois, brother of Louis XVI, acquired a small chateau built around 1720 in the Bois de Boulogne, and which had been a well-known place for debauchery, which explains the origin of its name.
The Count of Artois wagered a bet with Marie-Antoinette that he could rebuild the chateau in two months. Begun on 21 September 1777, it was finished within the time and inaugurated on 26 November.
Architect: Belanger.
