‘Iniquitous intrigues, dark secrets and peculiar peccadilloes…a royal romp that is exquisite and wickedly funny’ The Observer
To celebrate the third and final series of the captivating, sexually charged hit BBC Two drama Versailles, we are giving away 13 copies of Versailles: Complete Series 1 – 3 Box Set, which is released on DVD 13 August alongside Series Three, courtesy of Acorn Media International.
The third instalment of Versailles finds Louis XIV in a celebratory mood. Having brought an end to the Affair of the Poisons and won the war against Holland, it seems that nothing will thwart his plans to expand his empire and assert his power over the whole of Europe. But there is trouble brewing.
At Versailles Louis is facing new challenges as his new mistress leads him into an assertion of absolutism which causes considerable conflict in the Court. Louis starts to lose all tolerance for any kind of resistance, be it from his people, Protestants or the Pope himself.
And a major threat hangs over Louis…a mysterious prisoner whose face is hidden behind an iron mask.
