Description

Regal supper.

This room in the Palace of Versailles, formerly reserved for the King's supper, suffered from the ravages of time: the furnishings were dispersed and the paintings damaged. No less than sixteen months and the work of fourteen restoration workers were required to return the Queen's Grand Couvert to its original state.

Louis XIV supped in the Grand Couvert at 10 pm every day, surrounded by his family and a crowd of courtiers. Dishes and desserts filed past in a procession from the kitchen for an hour, under the watchful eye of the Court.

Thus, for the first time, a room in the Queen's Grand Appartement has recovered its former glory. The Palace of Versailles hopes to be able to continue the restorations of the remaining rooms in the apartment.
