Versailles (2015)

As you all know by now History Geek that I am , I managed to come across another Tv series based on the late King Louis XIV of France . Not only is this drama informative but my days the scenery and palace is beautiful . I loved the interior of olden day French rooms , the décor the way the doors were literally hidden in the walls . The way the director has shown the standard of living of the French royals and nobility – sheer brilliance !

Let me give you an insight to the drama ;

basically  its from years 1667, 28-year-old all-powerful king of France, Louis XIV (George Blagden who is athelstan in the drama Vikings) , decides to build the greatest palace in the world – Versailles. But drained budget, affairs and political intrigues complicate things.

The whole series revolves around secret love trysts , illegitimate children how the king fought and dealt with political affairs. It is not solely about king Louis but his brother aswell Monsieur Philippe d’Orléans (gorgeous Alexander Vlahos) and how the flaunting of his effeminate side creates problems among the royal court not to mention his choice of lovers !
