Show Synopsis

Outstanding political strategist and master manipulator, Louis XIV “invents” Versailles in order to keep the French nobles under control, progressively transforming Versailles into a golden prison. He is also inclined to Romanesque passions – but how to indulge when one is the greatest king of the world? It’s a revealing look at a gilded and gritty world of betrayal and intimate secrets, of political manoeuvres and war.
