Marie Antoinette (Emilia Schüle, Berlin Dance School) is just a teenager when she leaves Austria to marry the Dauphin of France (Louis Cunningham, Bridgerton). When she arrives at Versailles, she must obey the numerous and complex rules of the French court.
The princess quickly suffers from not being able to live her life the way she wants, while her mother, the Empress of Austria, (Marthe Keller, Marathon Man) keeps pushing her to continue the Bourbon line and thus secure the alliance between the two countries. However, faced with Louis' avoidant and solitary character, the mission turns out to be more complicated than expected.
Transforming from the young Dauphine to the Queen of Style and a true fashion icon, Marie Antoinette will eventually understand the rules and secrets of the Court and will attempt to recreate Versailles in her image: free, independent and feminist. But her successes will provoke jealousy and rivalry. As defamatory pamphlets and persistent rumors about her private life undermine her status, her opponents within the Royal Family will do everything they can to bring her down.
