The Real Versailles :- Watch The Real Versailles full movie on Project Free Tv,This week, the opulent court and raunchy private life of France’s most famous king, Louis XIV, come to BBC Two in the first of a 10-part series – Versailles. One of the stars of the show is the palace itself; its staterooms, bedrooms and gardens form the backdrop to much of the drama. But while television can give you a glimpse of the splendour of Versailles, nothing quite compares to visiting the real thing.Here, in 1682, André Le Nôtre created formal gardens and avenues unlike anything Europe had seen before. Approaching the gilded gate and gleaming burnished facade, it is easy to imagine the anger felt by poverty-stricken Parisians around 100 years later as they stormed the cobbles at the height of the French Revolution. This palace was where the Bourbon line reached its zenith, but was also the backdrop to its downfall, making it a fascinating place to visit. Here are 10 highlights.Versailles, 1667. Haunted by the trauma of the Fronde as the nobles of his court begin to rebel against the monarchy, 28-year-old Louis XIV (George Blagden), in a Machiavellian political move, decides to make the nobility submit by imposing a definite move of the court from Paris to Versailles, his father’s former hunting lodge. Trapped by their king’s “invitation”, the nobles of Paris gradually come to see the castle as a gilded prison and soon even the most humble courtiers of the king begin to show their viciousness as the alcoves of secrets, politics and war are maneuvered through, revealing Versailles in all its glory and brutality.
