Louis XIV resolved the case of Poisons and won the war against Holland. It seems that nothing can prevent his ambitions in the new episodes of Versailles. He strives to expand his empire and take over the whole of Europe. But his dreams are expensive. People are tired of paying, that’s why insurrection is rising. In addition, new tests are waiting for Louis in his residence. Versailles season 3 brings chaos for French king and his royal court. His new favorite Madame de Maintenon leads him to an absolutist affirmation, which is not devoid of significant disagreements at court. Gradually Louis XIV does not tolerate any dissent, whether it’s his people, Protestants or sovereign pontiff. Nevertheless, the threat loomed over Louis, in the form of a mysterious prisoner hidden under the mask in the 3rd and final season of Versailles series.
