Immediately after the Royal Family were taken prisoner, the palace of Versailles was raided and looted by the angry mob.

After this, the palace went through several states, often serving as housing and accomodation. Napoleon later wished to refurbish the palace but it was too costly an endevour, I believe.

I'm sure another member could tell you a lot more though!

I believe that it is Louis-Philippe Egalité, who decided to transform Versailles into a museum… :D

you are quite right louis-charles, even if he is a backstabbing sell-out.

I think that you are mistaking the father with the son? The father died on the scaffold in 1793, long before his son turned Versailles in to a museum dedicated to "all the glories of France", inscription still visible on the front of the Chateau to this day.
