The inside story

The Hall of Mirrors is the largest and perhaps the most famous of Versailles’s 700 rooms. It looks magnificent today, but would have been stunning when constructed in the late seventeenth century. Mirrors were then fantastically difficult to make – and hugely expensive. In fact, France had to persuade skilled Venetian mirror makers to teach them the secrets (and Venice tried to assassinate their traitorous artisans).

The hall has 357 mirrors, filling a space 73m (220ft) long. It was used by courtiers as a place to meet people or to pass through the palace. On special occasions, it would be used to impress visiting dignitaries such as ambassadors or foreign leaders. Queen Marie-Antoinette had her wedding party in the hall, and it was also the site of some historic agreements: Count Otto von Bismark’s proclamation of the German Empire and the Versailles Treaty that ended WWI.
