Billiard Room

I read somewhere (Man, I say that way too often) that this isn't the original billiard room.  (Not the one in which that hothead Comte de Vaudreuil snapped Marie Antoinette's pool cue in half.  Serious breach that Louis XIV wouldn't have let pass.)  The billiard table completely dominates this room and the impression it gave me was that it was just a thrown together display, but maybe it was exactly how it should've been.  Don't know.  Count Fersen's presence would improve the space considerably - just lounging around, pool cue in hand.  He may not have been much of a lounger, though, unless an especially elegant one.
