    Original lang: French

    1562. In France, during the reign of Charles IX, the wars of religion are raging...

    Marie de Mézières, heiress to one of the kingdom's greatest fortunes, loves the young Duc de Guise, known in the annals of history as Le Balafré, "Scarface". She believes he loves her back. To increase his family's prestige, her father, the Marquis de Mézières forces Marie to marry the Prince de Montpensier, whom she has never met. The Prince is summoned by Charles IX to join the war against the Protestants. With the whole country turned into a bloody battlefield, he sends his young wife to Champigny, one of his most secluded castles, in the company of the Comte de Chabannes, his friend and former tutor. The Prince asks Chabannes to complete the Princess's education so that she can take her place at court one day.

    In unhappy isolation at Champigny, Marie tries to forget the passionate longing she still feels for Guise. Fate and the changing course of the war lead Guise and the Duc d'Anjou, the future Henri II , to stay at Champigny shortly after Montpensier has joined Marie there. In turn, Anjou falls in love with the Princess, to whose charms Chabannes has also succumbed.

    A violent, passionate rivalry develops with Marie as the prize.
