During the July Monarchy of 1830-1848, Marie Antoinette’s theater at the Petit Trianon was refurbished to better reflect the style of the mid-19th century as well as the style of its new patron, the queen Marie-Amélie—who was in fact the daughter of Marie Antoinette’s sister, Maria Carolina. The blue tapestries and other furnishings ordered by Marie Antoinette were removed and replaced with bright and (in my opinion) garish red. Additionally, the monogram above the center stage was replaced briefly with an eagle emblem by Louis-Philippe before finally being replaced with M-A, the monogram of Marie-Amélie. The theater has since been redone to better reflect its original appearance as desired by Marie Antoinette, although Marie-Amélie’s monogram is the monogram which has remained to this day.
