The Palace of Versailles is a royal chateau in Versailles in the Ile de France, region of France. In French, it is known as the Château de Versailles. When the château was built, Versailles was a country village situated 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 old regime.
