At the end of the 19th century, the Palace of Versailles made a spectacular come back. It became once more a national symbol and a place where political events unfolded. Nostalgia for its past splendour inspired the arts, literature and fashion. The splendour of Versailles, the poetry of its gardens, the ghosts of the Sun King and Marie-Antoinette featured among the dreams of the Belle Époque and the Roaring Twenties. It was also at that time that the Palace began its large-scale restoration and furnishing project, causing heated debates that carry on today.
"With the support of the State, but also of all the people who love Versailles, we are fighting. We hope to get through this difficult period without letting go of what makes the Estate’s core greatness, so that it continues to shine throughout the world ", Catherine Pégard, President.
