A symbol of France’s glory, Versailles is probably the most splendid royal palace in Europe and is seen as one of the wonders of the world. From 1643 to 1792 it was the stage on which the most glorious period of the French Monarchy played out, until the darkest days, at the fall of the Bourbon dynasty.

This three-part series offers a sensitive and endearing portrait of the monarchs and recreates their life, loves and political willpower.

I have always been interested in the French Revolution of 1789, and have wanted to know its origins and at what point in time France fell out of love with their neglectful monarchy. This was perfect to watch for some background knowledge for my history essay on the topic of the Great Fear. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in early modern Europe or anyone taking a history course.
