Maybe it’s just a myth, I hope so… :lol:

I'm rereading Antonia Fraser's biography of MA, and she was saying that the court pets were allowed to defacate anywhere.

However those are pets though. Pets have a tendency to defacate anywhere, because there animals and don't know any better? :roll: Or do they if they have an "accident" on the carpet and give you the "guilty" look. :?

:lol:

I'm sure even royal pets had the equivalent of litter boxes or "spots" where they were supposed to go.

I doubt that but I am sure that someone had cleaned after them (I hope so). Please, if you find something else interesting about the 18th century hygiene in M.A. biography, let us know. :)

Dear Lord, whenever I try to idealize the 18th century something like that show up! :lol:
I just cannot imagine living in faeces and filth.:shock:

These works are from the 19th century and this is how I imagine the 18th century bath time.

Did you know that Louis XIV had only about 40 baths during his entire life? :shock: :shock: :shock: That's why he had perfumes in every corner of Versailles. He would just put some perfume on instead of bathing :roll: It was not usual to have a bath. It is said that some rooms in Versailles still stink today because of their bad hygienic habits...
