On August 10, 1901, two English ladies decided to visit the Palace of Versailles for what was anticipated to be an ordinary day of sightseeing. However, on that fateful day, a series of mysterious encounters occurred. When the ladies visited Queen Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon, both were later convinced they had stepped back in time to the eighteenth century. One of the ladies even believed she had witnessed the queen herself! Were the ladies encounters a case of mistaken identity and confusion, or did they unknowingly step back in time to walk along paths from a bygone era at Versailles?
