Nice backyard by randjb Star this if you like it!

Since Louis wasn't allowed to leave France, ransoms of captured kings being what they were in those days, he thought he'd bring a little of Venice to him... by having his gardeners dig a small version of the Grand Canal. Despite how overwhelming large the grounds of Versailles are today, they are only a small fraction of what they once were. When Louis said "mine," he pretty much meant everything he could see.
