Who built Versailles?
Versailles is famously known as the royal residence of France. The palace of Versailles was built by Louis XIII in 1624 and was since then a home to the next kings of France.
This is a fact from the pages of history till 1789 when the French Revolution commenced. Louis XIII built a huge structure of a hunting lodge in Versailles which was much beyond the vicinity of Paris. Today Versailles has become a global destination for this costly building that stands upright with all its grandeur and extravagance. Versailles was also a home to the Louis XIV who was better called as the “Sun King”. Versailles is like the central point in France with the French Court and is yet one of the grandest theatres in the history of European absolutism. Today Versailles is also deemed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
