The story gets under way when Louis XIV gets an agonising pain in his leg upon his return from a hunt. A fortnight later, he is bedridden in Versailles. This is the start of the long, drawn-out death throes of France’s greatest king, who must also organise his successor as he is surrounded by his faithful followers: his doctor, his favourite Marquise of Maintenon, his surgeon and his top manservant.
