Versailles, season 3

This season is the one of all ambitions for Louis XIV, while the gap is widening between the people and the royalty. Extending his empire to the whole of Europe has a price, which his subjects refuse to pay !

In Versailles, too, there is no shortage of challenges. The new favorite of the king, Madame de Maintenon, leads him to an absolutist behavior which is not without causing important dissensions at the Court. Little by little, Louis XIV no longer tolerates any dissent, whether from his people, from the Protestants, or from the pope himself.

But his “omnipotence” still leaves a threat: a mysterious prisoner hidden behind a mask… Who is he ?
