• Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode nine….

    Here we go with episode nine, which means Versailles season 3 is almost over… and everything behind this sentence will be very full of spoilers.

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode eight….

    Salut and vive le roi. Episode eight. Are you ready for this? Lots of things happened last episode. Sophie and Eléonore are on the way to the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands, after Fabien let them go. The Church, or rather Cardinal Leto, is not happy with Louis and the other way around. The Chevalier engaged in forgery. Bontemps spilled the…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode six….

    Bonjour. Episode six. Only four to go. I will need vacation after the last episode, because writing the reviews is very exhausting. One usually takes me something between six and nine hours…. and everything behind this sentence will be very full of spoilers.

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode four….

    Bonjour again. I had a cup of tea and am somewhat ready for the next episode…. and, as usual, everything behind this sentence will contain spoilers. Last episode, we saw Bossuet at the Vatican, which is a bit worried thing could get difficult for Louis soon. Louis has learned about Madame de Maintenon’s past and also that the poor people are…

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode three….

    I hope you have a cup of tea or any other beverage of your choosing ready, for we are about to jump back to 17th century France… and everything behind this sentence will contain spoilers.

  • Thoughts on Versailles season three, episode one….

    Bonjour! Here we go again. It is time for Versailles season 3, which will be, in case you don’t know it already, the last season. On what kind of roller coaster ride will we go this time? Who knows. What we know is that one of this season’s topics will be the mysterious Man in the Iron Mask…   ……

  • The two marriages of Philippe de France

    A 17th century marriage was more or less a business contract. It was about wealth, titles, patronage, heirs, and if one was a member of a royal house about politics. Everyone involved was aware of it.   Monsieur had the bliss, he would probably call it misfortune, to be married twice. As brother of the Sun King it was his duty to…

  • Versailles Season One, What Happened And What Not….

    If you watched Versailles, you probably did ask yourself what of all the things shown on the show actually happened and what not. Is it more fact of fiction? It is both. Most of the things we see on the show have their roots in historical events or gossip of the time, but not everything happened as it was shown……

  • Much Ado About Versailles. A UK Media Rant.

    It is Thursday, June 9, the 315th anniversary of Philippe death and one day after the second Episode of Versailles aired in the UK. You probably all read of the horrendous critics Episode One received, they were rather hard to ignore, and you most likely read the fuss that was made before Episode One even aired. It ranked from utter crap…

  • “Versailles sounds and looks very silly.” Does it?

    It’s been a while now since Versailles has aired in France and I did my last bit of ado on it.
