Views of the World, Gal. of Battles, Palace of Versailles, France

The Gallery of Battles was the brain-child of King Louis-Philippe I.  Completed in 1837, the Gallery was carved out of a number of first floor apartments in the Palace of Versailles, and commemorated French military history with a series of massive paintings of French battles ranging from The Battle of Tolbiac, 495 to the Battle of Wagram, 1809.
