Louis has solved the Poison Affair and won a war against Holland. Nothing seems to be able to counter his terrible ambition, to extend his Kingdom and impose his reign to Europe as a whole. But dreams have a price. Anger is growing amongst the people who don’t want to pay anymore for the King’s extravagancies. Revolution is near and Versailles isn’t safe. New challenges await the King. Madame of Maintenon, his new favorite, drags him into implementing absolutism, causing conflicts in the Court. Bit by bit, the King cannot tolerate any more dissensions, from his people, the Protestants or the Pope himself. And yet, a mysterious prisoner, hidden behind a mask, is causing an unknown threat to the King.
