Enter the intoxicating world of secrets, betrayal, love and war as the gates of Versailles are opened.
At 28 years old, King Louis XIV of France (George Bladgen, Les Miserables) is in sole command of his kingdom, following the death of his mother, Anne of Austria. Louis is a spirited and seductive man, an extraordinary strategist and an utterly ruthless statesman. Louis has a dream, an obsession: to build the most beautiful palace in all of Europe – Versailles. Symbolising all the splendor and glory of France, it is a place where he will be safe at last and Versailles sees Louis XIV grow from a young King into an all-powerful absolute monarch.
Produced on a magnificently grand scale, Versailles follows flamboyant nobles, beautiful courtesans and humble servants through the world of the Palace, in all it’s brutal glory.
Portraying this array of historical and fictional characters, Alexander Vlahos (Merlin) stars as Louis’ free spirited younger brother, Philippe, Elisa Lasowski (Game of Thrones) as King Louis’ Queen and Sarah Winter (Reign) as King Louis’ mistress of many years, Louise de La Vallière. The incredibly authentic costumes showcased in Versailles were all designed by Madeline Fontaine, well known for her work on successful films such as Amélie and Yves Saint Laurent.
