Description: Nancy was the temporary residence of a king (Stanislas Leszczynski, later Duke of Lorraine) without a kingdom. Ironically, the site is the oldest as well as the most typical instance of a modern capital where an open-minded monarch demonstrated sensitivity to the public’s needs. The architect Héré and his talented team built the place between 1752 and 1756; his carefully envisioned project accomplished in creating a capital that both enhanced the sovereign's prestige and was also functional. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
