Welcome to Life at Versailles!
 Life at Versailles is a place to learn more about the people who lived in the Chateau of Versailles and their way of life. This is a place to discover the human side of history.  
    Learning about the lives of historical figures is a much more interesting way to learn the history than to just learn the times and dates, important as those two things may be.  There is much more to contemplate when you have a sense of the person behind the deed.  A person like you or me, with their own sense of purpose and set of values that influenced how they made their decisions that we are reading about hundreds of years later.
  My hope for this site is to entertain and educate anyone who is interested in learning more about this exciting time in history. 
  The site will regularly be updated, as I have much more work to do...what you see now is as far as I have gotten with it- all the content is my original work! 
  If there is something I have missed, or a question that you have about something you have read, please feel free to contact me.  I love French history, and I hope you will too!
