Le Château de Versailles #1

This week I´m taking you to the Palace of Versailles. As of 1661 Louis XIV (the "Sun King", 1638-1715) transformed and expanded his father´s hunting lodge and over the following decades had it expanded into one of the largest palaces in the world. In 1682 the court and government of France moved to Versailles.
