Louis XIV transformed the modest hunting lodge of his predecessor into one of the greatest architectural wonders of its age. The palace evolved during Louis XIV’s reign to reflect the power and privilege of “The Sun King”. Formal, gilded interiors reflected the strict protocol demanded of the Court. While outside, the king created a landscape with greenery and endless waterworks, where the strict rules of etiquette were relaxed, theatrical events flourished and romance bloomed. This is a Hot Topic Happy Hour class. BYOB!
