The collection comprises the royal archives, old journals and Sakaizambohitra registers, and registry office documents under the monarchy from 1878 to 1898. They are highly significant as they represent a key element in the foundation of the country's identity. The royal archives contain written documents that come from the recovery in 1895 by General Duschesne, Resident-General at the end of the reign of Ranavalona III, of the archives of high-ranking figures in the Kingdom of Madagascar, including Rainandriamampandry and Rainilaiarivony (Prime Minister).
