France’s Palace of Versailles and Louis XIV

Versailles is the palace other palaces were modeled after, the one many tried to outdo — but none succeeded. This ultimate royal palace is all about this man: the ultimate divine monarch, Louis XIV. The Palace of Versailles was the residence of the king and the seat of France’s government for a hundred years. Throughout Europe, when you said, “the king,” you were referring to the French king — Louis XIV. Versailles celebrated Man, rather than God, by elevating Louis XIV to almost godlike status.
