When the palace was building, the city of Versailles was a small village. The history of Versailles dates back to 11th century but today is a small but a quite rich city. Versailles was the center of the political power of the French Kingdom from 1482, when Lui XIV carried the royal court from Paris, until 1789, when the royal family was forced to return (three months before the French Revolution).
