Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Inside the Palace

Last week, I featured the grounds of the Herrenchiemsee Palace. This week, I am bringing you inside the palace to have a looksie at the museum containing so many precious objects.

Be thine own palace, or the world’s thy jail.
― John Donne, The Poems of John Donne

There were chests stacked along one wall, and Costis guessed the dismal spot was probably a closet cleaned out to make room for him. Hard to believe the royal apartments, so lavish elsewhere, would otherwise have such a plain corner. Expecting better of royal closets, Costis went to bed disappointed.
― Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia
…alone is such a nebulous state when one is queen.
― Rae Carson, The Crown of Embers

“We should be used to it,” Tatiana reasons. “There have always been lines separating us from the rest of the world, whether they were satin ribbons or iron rails.” 
― Sarah Miller, The Lost Crown

Court life for a queen of France at that time was, however, stultifyingly routine. Eleanor found that she was expected to be no more than a decorative asset to her husband, the mother of his heirs and the arbiter of good taste and modesty.
― Alison Weir, Eleanor of Aquitaine: A Life
A King will have his way in his own hall, be it folly or wisdom.
― J.R.R. Tolkien
