According to costume designer Madeline Fontaine, the production required the making of about 100 key cast member costume, and about 200 mass-produced extras costumes. Each costume, whether male or female, required about ten meters of fabric. See more »
This first series is set in 1667, but the infamous "black baby" incident, if it happened at all, is reported to have taken place in 1664, three years earlier. See more »
For Lovers of History who can forgive some inaccuracy for decadence and intrigue.
For Lovers of History who can forgive some inaccuracy for decadence and intrigue. Absolutely love this show. Visually rich and very nice attention to detail and character development. Great acting in general but no doubt props going to George Blagden as Louis XIV (who is also amazing in Viking another epic show) and Alexander Vlahos as Philippe (a very great character analysis).
This show reminds me a bit of The Tudors with Jonathan R Meyers but so far much better about pacing and accuracy.
I seriously want three maybe more of Louis XIV and hope they continue with other rulers i.e Louis XV aka Beloved and Louis XVI with Marie Antoinette. Seriously need more shows like this. History is far more interesting than made of stuff half the time.
Great job cast and crew.
