Built in the 17th century during the reign of Louis XIV to project the absolute power of the French monarchy, it served as the political capital and royal court for over 100 years, until in 1789 the revolutionary mobs massacred the Palace Guard and dragged Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette to Paris to cut off their heads! Undoubtedly the grandest and most famous chateau in France.
