After 29 years of governing without pause, Philip the Handsome dies and is succeeded by the Frenchman Louis X, a prince of weak character and poor intelligence. When his wife, Marguerite of Burgundy, is imprisoned for adultery, the King's private rivalries, intrigues, and conspiracies are brought to court—and to the eyes of the church dignitaries, the judges, the bankers, and the people.
