As Louis triumphs in battle against the Dutch Queen Marie-Therese rules as regent but the poisonings continue though Fabien refuses to return to court. The queen responds to events by closing the salons and severely restricting alcohol, an unpopular move which also affords Philippe kudos when the sultan of Bijapur refuses to discuss trade with a woman and he steps in to secure an agreement. When Claudine becomes the latest victim Fabien strides into Versailles, interrupting a merry-making concert but like the rest of the court he is unaware of a deadly pact between Gaston de Foix and Madame Agathe. Montespan meanwhile does her best to prevent a prospective rival, Isabelle, from becoming a lady-in-waiting to Marie-Therese. Written by don @ minifie-1
