Versailles

Versailles Playing Cards created by Matéjà and printed by B. P. Grimaud, recalling the magnificence of the Château and the sumptuously dressed kings and queens who lived in it. Versailles was the seat of political power in the Kingdom of France from 1682, when King Louis XIV moved the royal court from Paris, until 1789, just after the beginning of the French Revolution.
