Inspiration for the palace
I based the palace in the After The Rift series on Versailles, the French palace near Paris. The ostentatious building as well as the formal gardens and opulent interiors are the perfect template for the mysterious home to Glancia’s new king.
For plans of Versailles’ layout, check out the fabulous This Is Versailles website. The site also has lots of interesting stories about the real kings and queens who graced the palace’s walls.
