After 29 years of governing without pause, Philip the Handsome dies and is succeeded by the Frenchman Louis X, a prince of weak character and poor intelligence. When his wife, Marguerite of Burgundy, is imprisoned for adultery, the King's private rivalries, intrigues, and conspiracies are brought to court—and to the eyes of the church dignitaries, the judges, the bankers, and the people.

Maurice Druon was a French resistance hero, a Knight of the British Empire and a holder of the Grand Croix de la Legion d'Honneur. He was also a member of the Academie francaise and a celebrated novelist, best known for his series of seven historical novels under the title of The Accursed Kings, which were twice adapted for television. A passionate Anglophile, he was a great expert on all things English, including its medieval history, which provides great inspiration for the series.
