Trivia

Throughout the show, Evan Williams's character is called only Chevalier (or the Chevalier). This is likely to avoid confusion since, like his lover, the Chevalier de Lorraine was named Philippe. Coincidentally, the Chevalier also had an older brother named Louis. See more »

Goofs

Though the series is set in the 17th century at the early period of Louis XIV's reign, the setting of Versailles is inaccurate due to the building in present state not bearing resemblance to any of the 17th century vestiges thought up of Louis XIV. See more »

A feast for the eyes
4 January 2016 | by pale_pixieSee all my reviews

I've been waiting for what seems like ages for a series to come along that I look forward to each episode. This is it. Absolutely gorgeous, stunning settings, costumes and sets.

The actors are fascinating. I don't care if it is minute by minute historically accurate as I can read a history book about Versailles and life there, but this is super interesting as a drama within that palace and time frame. Everyone is just so real. They are horrible, loving, scheming, nasty, lavish, flamboyant, crafty and violent, but isn't that what real life and humans are all about? I am loving the costumes, jewels, food, florals, decor and art.

Fingers crossed for Season 2.
