This room was the state bedchamber and, as such, is magnificently opulent.
As well as another tapestry from the 'Victories' series and two narrower ones from 'The Art of War' series, the Third State Room houses some of finest examples of historic sculpture and furniture in Europe.
Placed on the Savonniere carpet and around the room are supreme examples of ornate furniture by Boulle, generally recognised as one of the most remarkable French cabinet makers.
The room is also home to more outstanding objects such as the very fine Japanese Kakiemon vase on the mantlepiece, flanked by superb bronzes.
The man sitting down is the 1st Duke of Marlborough when he was older. He is talking to Colonel Armstrong, a friend who fought with him throughout the War of Spanish Succession.
The Duke's wife, Sarah, said she liked this portrait of her husband because it was ‘a good likeness’.
