La Reine Margot is a film about one of French History's more colourful characters, Margeurite de Navarre. Her father, 3 brothers and husband were all kings of France. The royal residence was the Louvre, and the Chateaux of the Loire Valley were their playthings.
Scandal, Intrigue, accidents, assassination, Murder (?), Massacre, Civil Divide. The House of Valois excelled in all of the above- If there had been tabloid newspapers in their day, they would have filled them.
