The Dirty Secrets of Versailles

What are the Dirty Secrets of Versailles?

“Rumors of members of the court relieving themselves in the corner of stairwells, of a King holding audiences on his throne, a chair with a hole in the seat…” (Versailles’ dirty secrets – Toute L’Histoire, 2017).  According to Toute L’Histoire, “cleanliness was defined as having good breath and feet that didn’t smell” and perfumes grew in popularity to mask the smell at court.
