Bienvenue à Versailles, France
"Enhanced by the hands of the notorious Louis XIV..."
Words cannot even begin to describe the utmost beauty of the city of Versailles and Château de Versailles...
Initiating by becoming the seat of monarchy from 1682-1789, King Louis XIV had granted that the Palace of Versailles to be constructed as an intimate retreat; it eventually became the ultimate seat for French royal family, court, and government in 1682. Most of the town (city) of Versailles were created mainly because of the immense palace, not because of the wealth surrounding the palace, but because Louis XIV wished to place his estate where the current town was located; so he had the town relocated just outside of the palace. When the town was later rebuilt it began to rise immensely from the palace. Versailles held all forms of government except for judicial during its time as the seat for government.
