Post Behind The Secret Door...
Is there any pictures of what the tunnel which Marie Antoinette used to escape the mob looks like?

Here is a picture that I took during a tour... :D

Image
This is the door that is to the left of her bed, when we are in front of it.

Marie-Antoinette crossed this door, and then she went to the end of the corridor, she knocked on the door to get it in... she waited for a while, a guard came to her. And so she was able to join the King. :wink:

That's a great photo, I've never seen into the passageway before.

I took this picture during a tour... I was the only one to take a picture of this corridor, which is located just behind the secret door in chamber of the Queen.
I took full picture of this passage, so significant to the Queen, but other people had to believe that I was crazy to take so many pictures of a simple corridor :lol:

Was she in her main bedroom or in her petits appartments that night?

Do you know what the condition of the passageway between the King and Queen's room is? I have read that it is in bad condition and on the verge of collapsing, and another board said it was in good condition.

The passage in that photo looks fine.

I went through the passage itself on another tour of the Queen's private appartments, and stood at that doorway, which was open into the Queen's bedroom. The passageway looked fine to me. Superficially most of Versailles looks O.K. at the moment, its when you scratch below the surface.

I didn't know that you could actually tour passageway at one point.

The floorplan is exciting to see but I can't make out what is where. Can you post a legend for us? And where did you find the floorplan? A book? I want it!!! :!:

i got it off a website, and i also have one drawn, i complete floorplan of the chateau.

its very hard to explain.

the octagonal room is the meridienne.
and from the meridienne, the chaise, and the annex are all centered behind the chambre de la reine.
the chambre itself is 40X40X40ft.
