Description: The marble staircase in Château de Versailles or the Palace of Versailles. It was built some 20 km (12 miles) southwest of the centre of Paris. It was the seat of political power in the Kingdom of France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved the royal court from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789, three months after the beginning of the French Revolution.
