In 1667 in France, Louis XIV is a young king who wants to impose his power whereas he is traumatized by the Fronde (the revolt of nobility during Louis XIII's reign) and despite the attacks of conspirators. Then, Louis XIV decides to establish the seat of the power out of Paris, in Versailles. At that time, Versailles is just a hunting lodge but Louis XIV radically wants to transform this castle.

Story line
13 January 2017 | by savgill-21925See all my reviews

I found this to be a breath of fresh air. I can't wait for the next season to start. This series keeps me constantly anticipating as to seeing the next show. YES, I love the story line and the characters, however I did not care for the queens baby being born black. I was hoping it would be a boy to be an heir to the throne. This comment was not posted out of prejudice but out the happiness a boy would have brought to the king, who is very attractive as well as his brother and his lover too. Oh, my roommate loves all lovers activities in the the show too, so do I. I hope the brother has a baby with his wife, preferably a boy. making the king jealous or not knowing who is the father of a baby "boy". I correct myself, this has happened when the king brother's wife reveals she is pregnant. Now I wonder how they will be able to tell who is in fact the baby's father?
