Versailles, Pompadour, Barry

Twenty years ago, I had the opportunity to visit Versailles.  It was overwhelming and the grounds were stunning.  In this clip, you will see The Palace of Versailles and learn about two of the  mistresses of Louis XV of France Mdm de Pompadour and Mdm du Barry.

Aside: in the series of Doctor Who, The Doctor meets and becomes enamored with Reinette (Pompadour). While a sci-fi show, I feel like they got the essence of Mme P down.
