VERSAILLES THE MAGNIFICENT THE QUEEN'S HOUSE IN THE HAMLET: PETIT TRIANON In a picturesque group of thatched cottages, built on the banks of an artificial lake, Marie Antoinette, with her friends and children, found pleasure and recreation in watching the simple lives of the rustic households that here carried on real farming as a sort of " performance" for royalty. Sometimes the queen amused herself by making butter and cheese.
