Governess to the Royal Children...
As governess to the royal children, a position she received as a favourite, the Duchess de Polignac was to oversee the young dauphin personally. This included attention to his education as well as being ontop of the servants within his household. She did not however sleep in his room. Instead there was a glass door between hers and his so she could keep an eye on what went on in the nursery!
