“Palace of Versailles” Magazine N°40

Versailles was not only a venue for celebrations and entertainment, but also the place where the king made the decisions that influenced the politics and economy of the time, starting with control over the seas. As such, the choice and appointment of certain privateers fuelled the renown of these sailors at the service to the Crown who, by their courage, skilfully fought to defend the sovereign’s interests against the hordes of brigands seeking to rob merchants and travellers of their goods. The lives and destinies of these men have fascinated generations of novelists and filmmakers and captivated countless readers and viewers in search of adventures.
