The constitution and opening of the Musée Historique de Versailles counts as among the most important undertakings of nineteenth century French cultural policy. It appeared as an explicit manifesto for national reconciliation; in the context of the constitutional monarchy’s desire to establish its historical place in the long line of princes and regimes that were considered as the builders of a millenary nation. It appeared also as the best way for the public authority to preserve the castle; since the end of the Revolutionary period had presented each changing regime with the difficulty of dealing with this exceptional monument both in symbolic terms and in relation to its maintenance.
