de Jarjayes : Secrets in Versailles
Paris,1775. France is already in a big crisis, Queen Marie Antoinette leads a life devoid of morality along with her close poor reputation friends. French people are hungry, but the sovereigns in which they had put their trust continue to disappoint their expectations. The discontent continues to grow, cleverly hidden by the Ministers who inflicts taxes increasingly harsh. The Royals entrust their lives to those who know how to manipulate them to get more and more expensive privileges, encumbering the exhausted people. Among the soldiers of the Guard, however, Count Francois Augustin Reynier de Jarjayes, Lieutenant and Adjutant General of the Field distinguished for his loyalty and devotion to the Sovereign. Along with the Count, his brother Jean Francois Alexandre Reynier seems to show an unusual skill in weapons, coupled with his ambiguous fascination, whose dubious sexuality is able to attract men and women, without any distinction. He, who is the illegitimate heir of the family de Jarjayes, will undermine Francois Augustin in the heart of MarieAntoinette, and achieve higher ranks in the military career. An identity shrouded in mystery, among the intrigues of the Court, the forbidden love, the desire for truth and justice, and the unwavering devotion to the only ideal that is worth to believe in: freedom."
