Who ruled Versailles?

France’s King Louis XV (he ruled from 1715 to 1774) enjoyed life at the royal palace of Versailles, and part of the luxury was the many cats there, in particular his favorite white Persian, whom he would not allow anyone to tease. Gray angora cats lounged around the gambling tables, playing with the tokens. Sadly, the next king, poor Louis XVI, who went to the guillotine, was not at all fond of cats, though his wife, the ill-fated Marie Antoinette, definitely was.
