And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer.
This is the struggle the Sun King Louis XIV faces at the outset of Season 3. He has won nearly every war there is to fight. France reigns supreme as the most powerful state in Europe, with Louis as its absolute ruler. The opulence of Versailles shines for all to see. With all he has ever wanted seemingly at his feet, the Sun King now turns his unquenchable ambition to securing his legacy. Making history for the sake of history.
Louis wants to clean up Paris, secure their borders, annex Spain and spread his empire to the other side of the Atlantic. But his ambitions have a cost, and the people of France are straining under the taxes that fund his adventures.
In his way rise challenges new and old, from the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I to the Papacy and its oily representative Cardinal Leto, to a mysterious figure in a black bolted iron mask.
Starring George Blagden (Black Mirror), Alexander Vlahos (Merlin), Tygh Runyan (Battlestar Galactica) and Anna Brewster (Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
