Petit Trianon

Palais de Versailles, Ile-de-France

Built 1762, by order of King Louis XV for his mistress Madame de Pompadour on the grounds of the Palace of Versailles. Designed by Ange-Jacques Gabriel, Madame de Pompadour died before its completion in 1768 and therefore it was first occupied by Louis' new mistress, Madame du Barry. When King Louis XVI succeeded to the throne in 1774, he gave the chateau and surrounding park (Grand Trianon) to his young Queen, Marie-Antoinette, entirely for her own enjoyment. It has inspired many houses in Europe and America, but perhaps most notably Marble House in Newport.
