As of 2015, this is the most expensive television show ever produced in France. See more »
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 »
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.
