Going through the historical steps, The Palace of Versailles started as a hunting lodge for King Louis XIII, got its important political time in 1682, during the reign of Louis XIV- The Sun King- who moved his court from Paris to Versailles. In those days, the Versailles Palace was the symbol of France itself and the center of Europe in terms of elegance and court luxuries together with its political power. Louis XIV created an artistic renaissance, a Greco- Roman Empire shown in the way he presented himself and his surroundings.
