TV show description:
Set in France during the reign of Louis XIV (Blagden), the Versailles TV show features the “Sun King” building his palace, amidst all the intrigue of French Court. In 1667, the French air is suffused with power, sex, love, betrayal, and as ever — war.
At the age of 28 years, Louis is on the brink of greatness. Merciless and driven, he knows no bounds when it comes to reaching his goals. In his quest to rule France with an iron fist, Louis is obsessed with crafting the grandest palace in all of Europe.
For all its glory, Versailles is his court’s gilded cage, where Louis keeps a close watch on friends and enemies alike. There, the nobles drink, gamble, and even plot murder in their efforts to gain the King’s favor.
Episode #30 — The Legacy
