Now a major BBC Two drama, Versailles follows the life of Louis XIV as he creates his incredible palace.

It's 1667 and at the age of just 28 years old, Louis XIV is King of France. Haunted by the memory of the Fronde - an opposition lead by the nobility against his father - Louis knows that he must tame the French aristocracy or risk being toppled by them.

To do this, he conceives the construction of Versailles. He wants it to not only be the greatest palace the world has ever seen, but also a gilded prison that can keep the nobles out of Paris and under his control. As his enemies circle around him Louis proves himself to be an extraordinary strategist and a manipulative Machiavellian who will stop at nothing to ensure his sovereignty.

While all this is going on, Louis' queen Theresa of Austria must fight to keep her husband's attentions while he falls for his mistress - the sister of the King of England.

Covering an era and place laced with passion, death, love and vengeance, this sweeping, dramatic and captivating tale will delight any fans of the hit show and those interested in history
