And, the view one gets to see, if one knows Elissa

I'm thinking that I was standing about where Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette knelt on the day of their marriage.   Actually, it was probably closer to the alter, but I didn't take a picture from up there.  Madame Royale was baptized in this chapel. I only know of a few of the many significant events that took place here over a couple of centuries.  Researching them all could be an interesting life's work.  I like that it's designed so that the alter sits somewhat as an island, with space behind it, rather than completely up against the wall.

When you have as much passion as I do for Versailles...anything, just about anything is possible!
