The Rise and Fall of Versailles

S01:E02 - Louis XV, the Palace of Pleasure

2008 · 1 hr 1 min
As a military leader, Louis XV, was popular and successful, but he led France into the disastrous Seven Year War with Britain. As his Empire dwindled, Louis amused himself with scandalous love affairs, his own private brothel and bedded five sisters from the same aristocratic family. This is a florid and hugely enjoyable saga of sex, war, torture, gluttony, and some truly astonishing wigs.
