A day or two ago, novelist Catherine Delors announced on her wonderful blog, Versailles and More, the video Versailles: The Dream of a King, a BBC production.

Although the English version can only be viewed in the U.K., we are fortunate to have access to the original French version, which, according to Catherine, has more to do with Versailles.

Here is Catherine’s post on the original French film, Versailles, le reve d’un roi, which can be seen for free on DailyMotion: here.

Even if you can’t understand the French, the costuming and settings are well worth it.
