[Original Version - English Subtitles] In 1665, Louis XIV is ruling over a bloodless France. The king chooses a rather unique strategy to help boost the state’s coffers: to develop and grow a French luxury goods industry. Industrial espionage, kidnappings, technological innovations and financial reforms: for two centuries France will stop at nothing to impose its luxury goods at home and throughout Europe.
