When she wasn’t pretending to be a peasant, Marie Antoinette and the rest of the French Royals were enjoying this sprawling palace. Standing outside the massive golden gate, it’s easy to see how the starving French peasantry eventually had enough. What isn’t as easy to see is how any one person ever used even half of a complex this enormous. 

If any of you are looking for something to get me for Christmas, this table is fantastic.
The king of France would use this room when people came to swear their undying loyalty to him.
