Are you a HISTORY NUT? I am, and I love me some TV time-period drama! I couldn’t stop watching The Tudors, and when I was looking at it on Ovation, I saw the preview of Versailles. This new series starts on Oct 1, 2016, on Ovation.
Versailles is about the history and life of King Louis XIV of France. The new series captures the romance, drama, and betrayal surrounding the Sun King while featuring the beauty and opulence of France’s 17th century high society.
Set in France during the reign of Louis XIV, Versailles is a lavish 10-episode production that tells the riveting story of the “Sun King,” the building of his opulent palace, and all the sex, murder, and power plays that roiled his court. Watch the drama unfold as Versailles becomes a battleground for romantic intrigue, power grabs, and declarations of war.
I love escaping to another time period especially the 17th century. All the GOLD and beautiful dresses and the men’s attire. I wished at times I was born in that era- you know that wishful thinking!
Check out the TRAILER:
KING LOUIS XIV- THE SUN KING. The 28-year-old King of France travels to Versailles after the Fronde revolt, to build the world’s most opulent palace.
PHILIPPE- LOUIS’ BROTHER. Louis’ younger brother Philippe is a free spirit, an effeminate dandy, and ferocious warrior.
HENRIETTE- PHILIPPE’S SPOUSE. Sister of King Charles II of England, Henriette is the wife of Philippe and the mistress of King Louis.
MARIE-THÉRÈSE- THE QUEEN Originally from Spain, the Queen is an isolated character, using what others mistake for ignorance to hide her most intimate secrets.
Check out the remaining CAST HERE. After reading the cast information, I ‘m more intrigued in the new show and can’t wait for the PREMIERE on October 1st at 10 pm ET/PT.
