Montcourt and Cassel
Montcourt and Cassel join forces with an aim to destory the Versailles project.
Montcourt is a noble who took part in the rebellion against Louis’ father. An early victim of the Great Inquiry, Louis makes an example of him in front of the whole court.
Montcourt turns bandit and discovers a whole new world of smuggling and violence. Recognising Montcourt’s thirst for revenge, Cassel entrusts him with an important mission: to destroy the Versailles project.
The Duke of Cassel
Cassel is the rich and powerful Duke of Northern France. He doesn’t need anyone or anything… least of all a young king determined to set new rules.
He refuses to acknowledge the Great Inquiry, to submit proof of his nobility or even to listen to the King’s messengers. He might be charming, but Cassel is also a skilled manipulator. He uses all means necessary to prevent Louis’ new order from becoming a reality, including sabotaging the construction of Versailles.
