Win Versailles: The Complete Second Season on DVD

Versailles: Season 2

STYLISH, bloody, violent, sexually charged, drama Versailles recently returned for its second series on BBC Two and now it arrives on DVD alongside Versailles: The Complete Series One and Two Box Set on June 26, 2017 courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Louis XIV (George Blagden), in a Machiavellian political move in his 28th year, decides to make the nobility submit to his will by imposing a move of the court from Paris to Versailles.

Trapped by their king’s ‘invitation’, the nobles of Paris gradually come to see the castle as a gilded prison and soon even his most humble courtiers begin to show their viciousness and danger threatens the kingdom, even so far as the court of Versailles into which a deadly poison seeps.

In series two, we join Versailles from 1672-1678; as the Franco-Dutch war wages on, Louis XIV confronts his bitter rival Guillaume d’Orange but could the palace he designed be his real enemy?

The King has created a new and dangerous civilisation where those around him will do anything to get to the Sun. They dream of ascending the social ladder to a world of wealth and power. Morality is waning, as sexual infidelity, drugs and gambling occupy the idle hours of those who live by the grace of the King, and the poison is spreading. Versailles is crumbling faster than it is being built.

This spellbinding, opulent, gripping period drama makes its DVD debut on June 26, 2017.
