That's all very well - but why?

Very impressive room. Surprised that Hearst didn't buy it for San Simeon . . .

I'm surprised the Beckhams haven't bought it yet. I expect it's on their shopping-list ...

Gracious, isn't that lovely? It would look just precious in the dining room....... or maybe two would look better......

Sometimes words come out before I can catch them - Good God Almighty! Haven't heard that in years. This picture inspired it.

All that blue, gold, and white--Chanukah--on steroids.

Dear me. That is quite a bit. Wouldn't a meeting of Ludwig I, Ludwig II, Wagner, and Lola Montez make a fascinating opera?

Reminds me of Cardiff Castle- same period and just as gilt and twiddly.

The word that springs to mind is "batshit." Also, as a working-class boy I can't help but wonder, who *cleans* that?
YOU, on the other hand, are looking completely delightful these days.

It can be lowered down to the ground for polishing and putting in candles. In times befor the electric lights were invented, chandeliers of this "Wattage" were necessary. Especially for a king's throne room, as this one.

Now I remember again how Ludwig II managed to ruin the bavarian economy during his reign. But at least he spend all the money on something enduring.
