This 15th century cardinal’s palace, once the residence of Queen Christina of Sweden – who gave up her throne to embrace the Catholic faith – was rebuilt in the 18th century. After the French Revolution, Joseph Bonaparte lived here for a time.
The killing of a French general in an uprising which took place near the palace in December 1797 led to the military occupation of the city by the French, the expulsion of the Pope and the proclamation of the Roman Republic. The upper floors now house the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica, a collection of 17th- and 18th-century paintings and drawings, started by Cardinal Corsini in the 18th century and now the property of the state. For permission to view the collection apply to the Galleria Nazionale, Palazzo Barberini.
