The conflicts, hatreds, intrigues, and crimes that plagued the 18-month reign of Louis X are resurrected in the third book of this saga. After having managed to destroy the work of Philip IV's reign in so few months, Louis is poisoned. His death marks the first time in three centuries that a monarch of France has passed away without leaving a male heir.
