  8. Hello, I love looking at floor plans of castles and palaces and am obsessed with them especially Versailles. I have had a question for many years about Versailles that you might be able to answer. Do you know how people would have got from the first floor to the hall of mirrors on the second floor? Which stair case they would have used and which rooms they would have walked through to get the the hall of mirrors? There doesn't seem to be anyway to get there without walking through the rooms of the king and queens apartments. Do you know anything about this topic? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hi! I have an odd fondness for floor plans as well but that should not come as a surprise :) People would indeed walk through the King or Queen's apartment to get to the Hall of Mirrors. We sometime tend to imagine these apartments as private but the King and Queen's apartments were open to everyone - even their bedrooms. It was only their private rooms that was off-limits. I hope that answers your question, if not just ask again :)

  10. Hello! I really adore your blog, it has so much amazing information about Versailles! I have a question for you. I am currently writing a novel set in Versailles, and I can't seem to determine where exactly the courtiers who served the king slept. I know the Chateau de Versailles website mentions that the established courtiers were accommodated in the Grand Lodgings or the Stables. Do you know where this is within the premises of Versailles? What it would have been like, or the interior perhaps? Do you have any information about the daily lives of courtiers in Versailles, more specifically during the reign of Louis XVI? I visited Versailles many years ago, but I was fairly young and didn't remember much, so if you know anything, that would be really helpful. :) Thanks so much for an awesome blog! :)

    1. Hi and thank you so much ! The most prominent courtiers had their own apartments within the château where especially the north wing was dedicated to this purpose while the south wing was mainly reserved for princes. Other courtiers were lodged underneath the roof in tiny, cramped apartments while others rented houses in the village of Versailles or - more popularly - Paris.
      Remember, that the courtiers only performed the duties that would involve direct contact with the King whereas the everyday tasks would be left to a smaller army of servants.

      If you have any more questions, feel free to ask :)

  12. Hi i am incredibly amazed with your blog! Thank you very much. I was wondering if you could point me towards a better understanding of how the ranks inside the court were established and how this was represented in objects, for example i understand that depending on the rank each person had to sit in a type of chair, but i haven't found pictures of these chairs, or pictures of how the apartments differed from one noble to another depending on their rank. I hope you can enlighten me on this matter, for everything else your blog has been incredible to read :) thank you!

    1. Hi Josh,

      Is there a particular right of entry you are looking for? If so is it an exact list of courtiers you seek?
      Indeed, certain courtiers - depending on their rank - was only entitled to having one door opened while others had both.

    Do you have a section on your blog which talks about the porcelain sets, jeweled objects and paintings from Versailles that ended up in the Wallace Collection in London and how they got there?

  26. Hi Louise,
    It's just an interest. I really enjoy going to the Wallace Collection and last summer went to take a look at the chateau de Bagatelle. It's just an interesting London/Paris connection and the collection of French art and objects is stunning and I find odd because I woudl expect it to be in Paris and not London. Do you do tours yourself or do you stick to writing?

    1. A great deal of the courtiers fled to London and some never returned to France which account for why London is so rich in French objets d'art. I am based in Copenhagen so I cannot do tours myself - also my blog is a hobby rather than a business

  30. I've lived for Versailles and Louis XIV since around the time I was in the third grade! What interests me most at the moment are the specifics of his parties and those of the later Louis'. Do you know where I can find specific details, activities of those? Also do you know of a place I could look at pictures of baroque haute cuisine; I saw the photos from Vatel, the movie, and that dinner hosted there a couple years ago served as it would be to Louis XIV. Love the blog!

  34. Hi! I love your blog and I've learned so much! Thanks for all the time and effort you put into it! I have a question. I've been researching the children of Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan and I came upon Madame de Pompadour. Is there a reason Louis XV never had any children with Madame de Pompadour or Marie Anne de Mailly, Duchesse de Châteauroux?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi!
      Thank you, I am really glad to hear that! Well, Madame de Pompadour suffered at least three miscarriages by the king; the last one in 1749 which was also the year when they allegedly stopped sharing a bed. As for Madame de Châteauroux that is a bit trickier. It may simply be that they just never conceived. Louis XV's fertility was well demonstrated in his many children by the queen but Madame de Châteauroux never had any children by either the king or her husband - perhaps she couldn't.

      Delete
    2. Thanks so much! I never knew that, that's so interesting! On a completely unrelated note, is there a reason some royal couples continued to have children and others didn't? I.e. Louis Ferdinand and Maria Joseph had 13, right up until his death, while Louis XIV and Maria Theresa and Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette stopped after only a few children.

      Delete
  35. Do you think that if all of Louis XIV's and Marie Therese's children had lived to adulthood he would have legitimized and treated his illegitimate children with as much as favor? (I.e. titles, advancing marriages, important offices)

  36. I am looking at the seating arrangements from the wedding dinner for Marie Antoinette and Louis. On one of the most favoured places, are written one word, Madame. As far as I know, there were no Madame at Versailles in 1770, the nearest would have been Adelaide, but she is there on the other side of the table.

    Who is this Madame? I reckon it can not be Madame de Barry..? Would that be allowed, even for a king?

    I have a question you might not be able to answer, but I'll give it a try:
    If a newborn child died, that was not of nobility, where would he/she be buried if the parents was workers at the Versailles castle? (in the late 18th century)

    1. Hi Marie! I believe it would have been buried in the local churchyard; the nobility tended to have their own crypts or mausoleums but the church at the village of Versailles was used by the commoners

  38. Good afternoon, Louise! My name is Tatiana, I'm from Ukraine. I am delighted with your blog, there is so much information here! I am fond of the period of Louis XIV and in instagram I have a blog dedicated to him - @leroilouisXIV. But there are more illustrations, and you have a lot of interesting information. Tell me, do you know which courtiers had the right to live in Versailles? What positions should they hold? And is there somewhere on the Internet a table of ranks of the 17th century? I would like to know about the positions and responsibilities at the court of the king and queen.
    Thank you again for your blog!

    1. Hi Tatiana! Those who were entitled to an apartment were employed in the households of someone in the royal family - primarily the king and queen. Others could be granted one out of favour. There is a table of ranks under "Ranks: Key to the Court" and I have some of the positions under "the Households"

  43. Hi. I’m writing a novel and I am trying to find one map or image that shows me Louis the 16 and Marie Antoinettes private apartment and the queens staircase plus the staircase leading to the Dauphin’s apartment do that I can recreate what happened October 6 1798 when Versailles was attacked. I think the king and queens chambers were upstairs and their sons chambers were downstairs but I’d like to see a map of it all to know that’s exactly where everyone was. I’ve read that there is the queens stairway that communicates to a guard room that communicates to her bedroom and that when she fled she somehow got to the kings chamber through a room which I think was a buffet room or maybe BOUEF room I’m not sure what the French call it.
