Plot Synopsis

The year is 1667 and King Louis XIV is a 28-year-old monarch on the cusp of greatness, willing to stop at nothing to achieve his vision of creating the most beautiful palace in Europe -- and seizing absolute control of France and his enemies. Haunted by the trauma of the nobles' Fronde revolt, he needs to keep his rebellious aristocrats in check. To this end, he decides to leave Paris for Versailles where he will build the world's most magnificent palace. Then, Louis launches the Grande Enquete to check the legitimacy of the nobles' titles, the first stage in his strategy to bring rebellious minds to heel. Louis can't stand the wild escapades of his flamboyant homosexual brother. Louis welcomes the African Prince Annaba to Versailles. To gain access to African territories, Louis plays his trump card, his wife Marie-Therese. Henriette, Philippe's wife and Louis' mistress, is constantly harassed by the Chevalier de Lorraine.
