Description

Versailles, 1672-1678. The Franco-Dutch war wages on, Louis XIV (George Blagden) confronts his bitter rival, Guillaume d’Orange, but danger threatens even inside the kingdom and 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 completed the first stage of his plan: to build the most beautiful palace in Europe, far away from Paris...and to lock the nobility inside it so as to exercise absolute control over it. But his plan backfires. Louis has created a new civilisation where the courtiers are ready to do anything to get to the Sun. Behind the veneer of etiquette, they dream of money, power, and climbing the social ladder. They will do whatever they have to: morality is waning, and poison spreads...Versailles is rotting. Blinded by his affection for Madame de Montespan, Louis is deaf to the Church’s injunctions. The greatest enemy standing before him is no longer the nobility, nor is it Guillaume d’Orange: the palace that he himself designed could end up becoming his worst enemy.
