The red notebook of the Palace of Versailles
Here is Versailles as never before told, piece by piece. This anthology gathers the writings of those who, French or foreign, imagined, built, maintained, lived in or simply visited the most famous castle in the world, in twenty essential places: Hall of Mirrors, Louis XIV's room, the king's study, the ox's eye room, Marie-Antoinette's room, the Grand Escalier, the royal chapel, the opera, gardens, the Trianon, the Orangerie, the queen's small theatre, the stables...
The places and their decor, but also the people and events. Here is a gallery of portraits and anecdotes on the facts and gestures that shaped the legend of Versailles. The sun king at his rise, Marie-Antoinette giving balls, the people of Paris entering the palace in October 1789, all were there, from the construction of the castle under Louis XIII to its transformation into a national museum decreed by Louis Philippe I, via the Versailles of the Bourbon kings. The most magical palace described by the most illustrious and talented guides.
