LES LIAISONS DE MARIE ANTOINETTE :

APPARTEMENT DU ROI

The vestibule is paneled in marble and lighted by two windows that opened onto the cour royale. In 1701, in order to provide more light to the staircase, the south wall opposite the windows was opened, thus creating a loggia from the vestibule.
