Docudrama about the life of Louis XIV nicknamed "the Sun King", the King of France who ran a glamorous court, expanded the borders of France, loved women and parties and built an incredible palace for himself - the Versailles.
The costume team consisted of about thirty people, including the series' main designer, her auxiliary design team, stitchers and fitters. 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 »
A feast for the eyes and ears, without a doubt! A great and pleasant surprise. Excellent and promising players! A series that are worth seeing, tells the story of the French King Louis XIV known as the Sun King of the 17th century, a king, smart handler, subtle, and your affectionate relationship but complicated with his brother Philippe, his court of friends and enemies, the conspiracies and interests, their lovers and its unwavering decision to build the famous and beautiful Palace of Versailles. Not being a documentary on the life of the King, the main idea is there and very well written and represented, with scenarios, clothing and spectacular dialogs. Congratulations to all of you, to the team of Versailles. I look forward to season 2 :-)
