In turn, in the Round Chinese Cabinet, Maria Theresa held secret conferences with the chancellor prince Wenzel Anton von Kaunitz. In another room conferred Napoleon. Whereas, in the Blue Chinese Salon the Emperor Charles I signed a waiver to participate in government. Noteworthy is also the Millionth Room. Its walls were minted by rose wood and decorated with precious miniatures from India and Persia. Thanks to its décor is one of the most beautiful Rococo interiors in the world.
