The Palace of Versailles, once the splendid home of King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette, is one of the most famous buildings in France but has a fraught history. The opulent grounds fell in to disrepute after the 1789 revolution when people turned against royal excess, and subsequent governments struggled to know what to do with the building. In Versailles, historian Colin Jones draws on a new raft of research to offer a concise history of the palace through its evolution from royal grounds to tourist destination.
