 Versailles is a vast, ornate royal chateau. Expansion of the royal hunting lodge there began in 1661 at the behest of Louis XIV when Versailles was a country village; it is now an outer suburb of Paris. It was the centre of political power in France between 1682 and 1789, the eve of the Revolution.
