Chaumont-sur-Loire is a commune in the Loir-et-Cher department in central France known for its historical defensive walls and its castle.

Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire[edit]

The Château was founded by Odo 1 (973-996), Count of Blois. At each epoch of French history the Château has been owned, rented or visited by significant persons in French and European history. In the period between the late enlightenment and the romantic period, Germaine de Stael was resident from April to August 1810. Many famous guests visited the lively and politically active Madame de Stael including Madame Recamier, Adelbert Von Chamisso, the counts of Sabran Sala berry as well as the author of "Adolphe", Benjamin Constant.[2]
