1721. A bold idea is brewing in the head of Philip of Orléans, Regent of France…
11-year-old Louis XV is soon to become king and an exchange of princesses would allow the nation to consolidate peace with Spain after years of war that have bled the two kingdoms’ coffers dry.
He therefore marries his 12-year-old daughter, Mademoiselle de Montpensier, to the heir to the Spanish throne, in exchange for which Louis XV must marry the Spanish Infanta, 4-year-old Mariana Victoria.
But this precipitous introduction into the grownups’ world of manipulation and power games will get the better of them and their carefree spirits.
