The Archbishop of Paris sat, "in these stormy assemblies, with the minority faithful to God and to the King. Resulting at votes approving this proposal, voted in opposition, and 12 more joined with reservations. On 24 June, as he was leaving the Assembly at Versailles, his carriage was attacked by the very people who a few months prior he had snatched from the horrors of hunger.
On the 27th he agreed to meet with the Third Estate, and his accession was hailed by the general acclamations of the assembly. At the end of the night of August 4, he proposed to sing a "Te Deum" of rejoicing, and on the 11th, he renounced the ecclesiastical tithes:. He had in his chamber a marvellous portrait of no one knows whom, painted by Jordaens, executed with great dashes of the brush, with millions of details, in a confused and hap-hazard manner. Gillenormand's attire was not the habit of Louis XIV.
He had thought himself young up to that period and had followed the fashions. His coat was of light-weight cloth with voluminous revers, a long swallow-tail and large steel buttons. With this he wore knee-breeches and buckle shoes.

The apartment is very clean, well furnished and surprisingly roomy for a studio. The location is wonderful. Our concierge, Hannah, was so sweet. Whatever we wanted she was there to provide. There is excellent pizza and crepes a short walk away. The neighborhood butcher had the very best rotisserie chickens we have ever had.
We cannot wait to return next spring. This was our second stay at a Parler Paris Apartment and both times we have chosen the Marais because we love the area.
Le Petit Trianon is as the photographs show, a delight. The interior colours are just gorgeous and everything works perfectly. The area was wonderful right in the middle of the fashion district and I had the pleasure of a pop up Alexander McQueen studio going in across the road -- each day fabulous models and clothes paraded before me!! Our Concierge was fabulous and made us both very welcome. Had a great visit in Paris! The Petit Trianon was a great location, we walked everywhere to see the city monuments, great local resturants nearby. Every night on way back to the apartment we would stop and have a drink at the local Brassiere right around the corner.
Le Petit Trianon is the perfect quaint abode to call your home for however long Paris is home. Whether you are a solo traveler like myself or a couple, Le Petit Trianon is the perfect place to come back to after a day out and about.
