Le petit livre de Versailles

Pourquoi Louis XIII fait-il construire un pavillon à Versailles ? Pourquoi Louis XIV décide-t-il de ne pas habiter à Paris ? Quand la cour s’installe-t-elle au château ? Pourquoi les courtisans portent-ils la perruque ? Quelle est la mode à la cour de Louis XV ? Quel est le dernier roi ayant vécu au château ? Comment Versailles est-il devenu un musée ?… Illustré d’images d’autrefois, ce petit album raconte quatre siècles de l’histoire du plus célèbre château de France, de sa construction en 1631 à nos jours, en passant par la marche des femmes sur Versailles en 1789 et la signature du traité de paix de 1919.
