We like to cover the modern mansions that are basically the palaces of modern day. We mean, future historians are going to be very confused that Drake Manor didn’t house the head of Canada but rather one of the most successful musicians working today. But what about the mansions of the past? Back when a country’s richest, most affluent people were also the ones in charge of everything. The emperors, kings, queens and leaders across human history. Well, they obviously had the grandest homes that money could buy. Many of which still hold their descendants today.
Let’s start with what might be the most recognizable royals living today. That would, of course, be the British royal family. Currently, they reside in Buckingham Palace as the main center for the UK’s royalty. Recently the Queen moved out of the famous palace and took her corgies down to Windsor castle, one of the other true wonders of Great Britain.
Then we have places like the Louvre and the Winter Palace. Both of these palaces once housed proud royals who built monuments to their power which they believed would stretch across centuries. In both cases they were terribly wrong and their lines came to brutal ends during two different revolutions. Now both of them are museums instead.
Across the world, there are several other palaces that you may not be aware of but you should know just how beautiful and expensive they truly are. The ones located in Japan and China may be the personal favorite.
So which of these palaces is the best? Only one way to find out!
