Antoinette's Versailles

Recommended Posts

My favourite place in all of Second Life is the Chateau de Versailles in SL, a monument to the RL Palace of Versailles where Antoinette and her husband, the eventual Louis XVI, reigned before their forced return to Paris and eventual execution.  

The builders of SL's palace have painstakingly worked on every detail in the palace, a labor of love of the last three years.  While there are plenty who have tried to tackle such a project, this Living Museum continues to grow year after year (hoping to one day be able to replicate the entire palace grounds).

Chateau de Versailles in SL isn't just a static museum, it is an active roleplay court as well.  The Royal Family have currently retired to Fontainebleu for the summer (of 1773, that is), but shall return in September.

The first video gives you a glimpse of the palace, but click here to see it for yourself.  If you're interested in RP, read the instructions at the entrance to the grounds, and check out the MP for period outfits.  There's not much time before court resumes!!  The second video shows a little more of the RP activity.  HERE is the link to check out the sims for yourself.

Vive la France! (Ooops!  I mean "le Roi!")

It is, from experience, the best community I've ever been part of. Underneath the RP is a thriving engaged community. I love it there and wonderful to live among courtiers!
