Château de Versailles' magazine : n°1
9.70 € tax excl.
From the Ancien Régime to the Present
The Palace of Versailles, an outstanding monument and one of most important places in the history of France, witnessed the monarchy's splendour. Its opulent art, architecture and gardens belong to the world's heritage. But Versailles also reflects over a century in the history of France, through its kings, their courts, their government, and the entire Ancien Régime society beyond.
Château de Versailles magazine, from the Ancien Régime to the Present adopts that perspective. The editorial line focuses on the palace itself, its history and the historical themes it symbolises. In the first issue we follow Louis XIV on a typical day, see how the Marly machine worked, explore Louis XVI's navy, attend the opening of the Estates-General and admire the chapel. In the first issue of the Château de Versailles magazine, the front page is devoted to a day in the life of Louis XIV
