Best Answer

The king Louis XIV built the palace as a beautiful mansion in which he made the nobility wait for him to answer to them as his will dictated. The members would often wait for months until the king accepted their audience. This made the nobility recognise their inferiority to the king and their inability to do anything to speed up the process of speaking to the king. This procedure trapped the nobility in the palace, making it substitute as a rather comfortable prison.
