Versailles is a beautiful palace but but yes courtiers did pee in the corners and the dining rooms were very drafty and the kitchen was so far away from the dining room the food was usually cold by the time it got to the dining room. But it was also very formal at Versailles only the king could sit in a chair with arm rest if you were in his presence and the higher your rank would decide if you received a chair with a back to it and then you could sit on a stool and if your rank was very low then you were required to stand.

yep, its basically how my household runs. :]
the most importantdinign rooms are the blue porvelain dining room within the kings private apartments, which is where the royal family ate privately. the second is the salon du grand couvert within the queens grand apartments, where the family dined in public. they werent that drafty, and arent today...

yep, for example;

one time, my sister took the milk and orange juice and stuck it on the roof, it was windy that day, and since we keep our orange juice and milk in glass pitchers they fell, and shattered on the ground. Having been hot that day the milk curdeled and made a huge mess.
so that night, my sister sat farthest from my father.

I agree with you, the servants were prboably put to work
and intended to clean

I'm not sure if that is a rank thing. It seems like more of a " You're- sitting- away-from- me because-I- cleaned up- the putrid- milk." sort of situation. Perhaps it isn't.

Intended too.
MA said that even though she had 500 people in her household, there was still dust on her Fireplace Mantel.

I remember reading a situation that there was dust on the window sill and she asked for someone to clean it up. The reply was.

" Your Highness, The dust did not fall during my jurisdiction."
