A Golden Gate?

Le Roi Soleil

Today’s WordPress Daily Post Prompt is Or.  Although the prompt is likely to be intended for interpretation in English, I thought I’d take a little detour in the beautiful French language.

Of course, Or is the French word for Gold…  And what can be more golden than the entrance to the quintessential residence of le Roi Soleil, Louis XIV?

A Golden Gate

Here we see the gate to the court yard of the Palace of Versailles (back in the 1960’s).

I hope you enjoy this little diversion!
