The crusades rooms

BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH

The Crusades Rooms of the Palace of Versailles date back to 1843. Created at the initiative of Louis-Philippe - the "bourgeois king" - they aimed to flatter the nobility and clergy who were hostile to him by paying tribute to the crusaders. To furnish them, Louis-Philippe commissioned nearly one hundred and fifty paintings and three hundred figures depicting the main episodes of the crusades. The doors of the Hospital of the Knights of the Order of St John of Jerusalem were even brought back from Rhodes to be inserted into a magnificent neo-Gothic setting, characteristic of the "troubadour" style of the Romantic period.
