Versailles - Seasons 1-3
The year is 1667. King Louis XIV of France is 28 and finally in sole command of his kingdom. Haunted by childhood memories of a bitter coup against his father, he commissions the most beautiful palace in Europe, Versailles.
The nobles crave entry to this lavish château, not realising that its purpose is to imprison and control them. One of Louis’ prime targets is his younger brother, Monsieur, an effeminate dandy and formidable warrior. The court is also a battleground for love as Louis’ queen, Marie Therese, fights to tame his wandering eye. Can she win back his heart from his mistress, the sister of the King of England? Welcome to a world of power and betrayal, love, lust and declarations of war, where courtiers battle for the King’s favour. This is Versailles in all its brutal glory.
Versailles, 1672-1678. Th&30;e Franco-Dutch war wages on, Louis XIV (George Blagden) confronts his bitter rival, Guillaume d’Orange. But danger threatens even inside the kingdom, within the court of Versailles itself with the Poison scandal. Between mysticism and obscurity, a dive into the dark side of power, with the king’s downward spiral, and his return towards the light.
Louis has brought an end to the Affair of the Poisons and won the war against Holland. It seems that nothing will thwart his plans to expand his empire and assert his power over the whole of Europe. But his dreams come at a cost, the people have had enough of paying and trouble is brewing. At Versailles too, Louis must face new challenges. Maintenon, his new mistress, leads him into an assertion of absolutism which causes considerable dissent in the Court. Louis' tolerance for any kind of dissidence, be it from his people, Protestants or the Pope himself, slowly disappears. However, a threat hangs over Louis, in the form of a mysterious prisoner whose face is hidden behind an iron mask...
