The Trianons Les Trianons
les grands palais de France

To the cover of The Trianons
Title Page
  • This work is a collection of illustrations of the Grand and Petit Trianon palaces situated in a part of the extensive park surrounding the Palace of Versailles, and includes an introduction and commentary on the illustrations by Museum of Versailles Head Curator Pierre de Nolhac (1859-1936).

    The Grand Trianon palace replaced the "Porcelain" Trianon palace erected as a villa for Louis XIV on the site of the old Trianon village, and is a small palace built of marble designed by French architect J. Hardouin-Mansart (1646-1708).
    The Petit Trianon situated at a short distance from the Grand Trianon was designed by Ange-Jacques Gabriel by order of Louis XV for the monarch's second wife, and was constructed between 1762-1768. An English park extends on the north side of the building and was frequented by Louis XVI's Queen Marie Antoinette.
