The Palace of Versailles s a royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. In French, it is the Château de Versailles.

When the château was built, Versailles was a country village; today, however, it is a wealthy suburb of Paris, some 20 kilometres southwest of the French capital. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime.

On this day in history, May 6th, in 1682, Louis XIV officially moved the French Court from Paris and into the Chateau de Versailles. It would remain the seat of power for the French monarchy for over 100 years, until the outbreak of the French Revolution when Louis XVI and his family were forced to return to Paris by the revolutionaries.
