Versailles 2

Location: Versailles, France

Detail of the balustrade on balcony. Louis XIV called himself the Sun King, as 'the sun brings light'. What an ego!

The Emperor Louis XIV crowning his wife Marie-Antoinette.

In Louis XIV's bedroom, which I think is below the windows in the previous photo.

Glory to the Sun King.

A writing desk from the period.

Looking out onto the gardens.

The Grand Canal.

The fountain of Apollo. Being winter the fountains and Les Grandes Eaux aren't operating.

Le Grand Trianon.
