THE HISTORY OF VERSAILLES

It all began in times of Henry IV, the founder of the Bourbon dynasty. Henry liked hunting in Versailles forests. Later, his son, Louis XIII, built there a small hunting lodge. A park was being laid out in this marshy, infertile place. The heir to the throne, Louis XIV, son of Louis XII and grandson of Henry IV, transforms the place into a tremendous palace and officially moves there in 1682. Since mid-17th century and till the French Revolution, Versailles was the place where the destinies of Europe and of the world were shaped, where careers were built and destroyed, where fashion was designed. It was the place of the most unbelievable stories and legends.
