7 ans...

Le roi est mort Versailles funérailles Louis XVIII
Seven years of VDP... Everything began on 31 January 2009... The 'the king is dead' exhibition draws to a close with later funerals. This is a reconstitution of Louis XVIII's funeral in 1824, with XIXth century replicas of the original emblems of the monarchy that are kept in the Louvre museum.

Sept ans de VDP... Tout a commencé le 31 janvier 2009... L'expo "le roi est mort" s'achève avec des funérailles royales et républicaines postérieures et une magistrale reconstitution de celles de Louis XVIII en 1824 avec des répliques du XIXème siècle des emblèmes et ornements royaux, les originaux étant conservés au musée du Louvre.

The setting is so dramatic, Ciel! 7 years - seems to long but goes so fast - looking forward to many more!

Congratulations! You have shown great effort, perseverance and art. Your blog is one of the most enjoyable around.

We have no equivalent of your memorials for the death of kings. Perhaps all the to-do over David Bowie is as close as we get.
