The Hameau de la Reine (The Queen's Hamlet) is the rustic retreat that was built for Marie Antoinette. It is situated in a secluded section of the Trianon gardens, within the park of Versailles, and adjoining the Petit Trianon, a small château designed and built by Ange-Jacques Gabriel for Louis XV's mistress, Madame de Pompadour, and which Louis XVI gave to his wife Queen Marie Antoinette, on his accession to the throne in 1774.
