It must have been nice to be Marie-Antoinette.  Well, except for the inconvenience of the French Revolution and the beheading in Place de la Concorde.  But before then, she had her own lovely bedchamber in the main palace at Versailles as well as her own estate on the property.

Here are three shots of her bedchamber in Versailles.  (Plus a bonus shot.)  Next trip, I’m going to check out her estate as that’s something I’ve not yet had a chance to experience.

Have you ever been to Versailles?  What did you think of your experience?

Marie-Antoinette’s Bedchamber Photo #1.  The gilded gold, pink floral tapestry bed where the Queen rested her royal head when she was in the main palace at Versailles.

Marie-Antoinette’s Bedchamber Photo #2.  Another view of Marie-Antoinette’s bedchamber that shows the door she used to escape when an angry mob descended on Versailles during the French Revolution.

Marie-Antoinette’s Bedchamber Photo #3.  A sneak peek at the view of the gardens that Marie-Antoinette enjoyed from her bed.

 

Marie-Antoinette’s Bedchamber Bonus Pic.  The lock on one of the doors to Marie Antoinette’s bedchamber.  Throughout the palace, angry mobs broke down doors like this during the French Revolution.

    • It was pretty cool being there, seeing her room, and hearing the history behind it all. Without the whole inconvenience of the revolution and beheading, Marie-Antoinette had a pretty easy life! 🙂
