Versailles

Presentation
Versailles
France - 2017
David Wolstencroft & Simon Mirren

Season 03 | World Premiere

Louis has successfully put an end to the Affair of the Poisons. The war against Holland is won. And now Louis has a new vision: for France, for the empire, for himself. He wants to secure France's frontiers, continue to colonise the Americas and get his hands on Spain. And he dreams of being God’s representative on Earth. But there are grave risks. The people of France are sick of paying taxes. Worn out. Hungry. Rebellion is in the air... At Versailles, new challenges and problems are brewing for Louis inside the palace as well. His new favourite Madame de Maintenon is slowly pushing him down the path of Absolutism. Where will this lead? Will Louis turn into an uncontrollable tyrant? But looming in the background is a shadow that threatens to destroy everything Louis is trying to achieve: a prisoner with a dark secret whose face is hidden by an iron mask.
