Considering that the clergy made up the first estate, where did bishops, archbishops and cardinals stand in the social hierarchy of Versailles?
Cardinals were usually ranked with the Princes of the Blood but an archbishop and a bishop's place depended on his family connections (noblesse d'épée or noblesse de robe) and whether he had other titles :)

Hello do you have any information about the life of Charlotte Godefride Elisabeth de Rohan- Soubise< Princesse of Code? I have searche the internet and can only find limited information about her life. I would be grateful if you could recommend some books or articles. Thank you, Michelle.
I found a few sources in French and English but as you say there is not much on the internet. I have made a post on her containing the information I could find - it is under Monsieur & Madame.Here are the sources:Memoirs of the Duc de Luynes (describes her young death from illness)House of Rohan (genealogical book of that house)There is a bit in Mémorial de Chronologie, genealogique et historique pour l'année 1753 and Histoire de la maison de Bourbon
