Aide-de-Camp’s Room

During the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph (and possibly earlier) an Aide-de-Camp’s Room was set up immediately before the monarch’s apartments on the piano nobile of the palace. The furnishings have been reconstructed on the basis of a photograph dating from the 1910s. The aide-de-camp was seconded from the army to serve the emperor and was thus not part of the imperial court household. His chief duties were to relay military information directly to the emperor, which explains why he was accommodated in direct proximity to the monarch.
