It preserved the traditional form of medieval fortresses but was designed as a residential castle. In the sixteenth century, under Lancelot II (grand-son of Lancelot I) which rallied to Protestantism in 1562, Chamerolles is distinguished by hosting a Protestant church in one of his plays. The castle became a center of the Protestant religion in the region. In 1672 Chamerolles belongs to Jacques Saumery in-law of Jean-Baptiste Colbert, minister of Louis XIV. He is a governor of the Royal Castle of Chambord and county of Blois, armed marshal.
