Vaux-le-Vicomte

The first of its kind, the luxurious Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte was built in the mid-17th century for Nicolas Fouquet, the superintendent of finance for King Louis XIV. Upon visiting Vaux-le-Vicomte, King Louis XIV was so enraged and jealous of its grandeur that he ordered Fouquet to be jailed and exiled. After, Vaux-le-Vicomte became the catalyst for the creation of the Château of Versailles with the King using the exact same talented artists that built Vaux-le-Vicomte to create Versailles.
