A succession of kings continued to embellish the Palace up until the French Revolution transforming the palace to the true piece of art, it is today.
Once the Louis XVI forced to leave Versailles for Paris in the French Revolution in 1789, the Palace would never again be a royal residence. The new role was assigned to it in the 19th century when it became the Museum of the History of France in 1837 by order of King Louis-Philippe, who came to the throne in 1830. The rooms of the Palace were then devoted to housing new collections of paintings and sculptures representing great figures and important events that had marked the History of France. These collections continued to be expanded until the early 20th century at which time, under the influence of its most eminent curator, Pierre de Nolhac, the Palace rediscovered its historical role when the whole central part was restored to the appearance it had had as a royal residence during the Ancien Régime.
