This Day in History Entry #326

There was Germany born, riding high
World War I came to end with a sigh
From a small lodge for sport
To the home of the court
Royal power, thy name was Versailles

Event: Louis XIV relocates the French royal court to the Palace at Versailles
Year: 1682

    Nice Franco-Prussian War reference. You don’t see many of those these days.
