Secrets and Transparency at the Élysée, from Félix Faure to the Present Day

Since the death of President Félix Faure in the salon d’Argent of the Élysée on February 16th, 1899, after the visit of his lover, the various scandals that have shaken the presidential palace have fuelled our slightly morbid curiosity for the corridors of power. Like the Palace of Versailles under the Ancien Regime, the Élysée has been—and continues to be—seen by many as the refuge of an omnipotent president who
188 conceals his exorbitant privileges and his over-ambitious projects from the eyes of the good people. This bizarre dialectic between rejection of and fascination for the site of supreme power is a common thread of our republican monarchy.
