Paris, 1572. For a decade, French Catholics and Protestant Huguenots have been locked in a violent struggle for control of France. Though King Charles IX reigns, it is his mother, Catherine de Medici, who holds sway. In a gesture of peace, Catherine arranges for her daughter Margot to marry the Huguenot king of Navarre, Henri de Bourbon-while secretly arranging the slaughter of thousands of Protestants gathering in Paris to celebrate the wedding.
Caught in the merciless machinery of court intrigue and married to a man she does not love, Margot begins an illicit affair with a Protestant soldier. Written in 1845 and based on true events, this classic historical romance has been adapted into several films, including the Cannes Jury Prize-winning Queen Margot starring Isabelle Adjani and Vincent Perez.
