Synopsis / Plot
Paris, August, 1572 – a troubled time in the history of France, a country torn by wars and religious strife. To appease the Protestants, the queen mother, Catherine Medici, arranges a marriage between her daughter, Margot, and the King of Navarre, Henri. However, this fails to prevent a massacre of the French Protestants, the Huguenots, by the Catholics. What follows is a series of murders, attempted murders and political manoeuvrings in which Henri of Navarre is forced to flee from Paris and the king of France is killed. Meanwhile, Margot finds a secret lover to take the place of the husband she cannot love.
