Versailles: The Dream of a King

I don't know if people saw this new show/documentary called, "Versailles: The Dream of a King", it is on BBC. It is very interesting, it gives alot of insight into Louis XIV of France and how he came built the Palace of Versailles. Any insights, anybody?

I absolutely love the series and look forward to the next episode.I was rather shocked really by Louis XV conduct and later life.....what degenerées....Louis XVI fell victim to the mistakes and ruin his immediate predecessors left France with.

Are you from Britain, I actually was browsing the BBC site and I found the series. I found it on YouTube, it is truly sad that the US doesn't have a BBC program.

In 1713 the village of Versailles was the "Ville nouvelle" where no building was allowed to be higher than the Palace of Versailles.

The Bull's Eye Salon gets its name from the oval window in the guilded stucco plastering.
