Wiill use the slide shows in class- Western Perspaectives II. As this site demonstrates, visuals bring history to life. A great retrospective of the life and times of LouisXIV and his monument, Versailles.

I actually really enjoyed this website because of it's easy navigaion and
beautiful layout. It included a great deal of historical landmarks and an
update on those landmarks, as well as beautiful portraits with a small
description of each. Again, learning a little history of France was fairly easy
to navigate through, and would definately recommend this site to anyone wanting
to know more.

There are many beautiful pictures on Versailles on this site. It has great
graphics and is extremely easy to navigate. The page is viewable in several
languages. There is tons of information about the history as well as current
day information. The whole site is full of rich details. Overall this is an
extremely informative site about Versailles.

Beautifully structured website with menus of the current events, and many more
about it's history. Many wonderful pictures and details about the entire palace.
I especially enjoyed the little known details about different rooms in the
palace, pictures of the "masterpieces" from the museum, and mention of the
King's chocolate recipe.
