A captivating, delectable romp through 16th Century France.

Based on the novels Young Henry of Navarre and Henry King of France by the German writer Heinrich Mann, this lush, historical epic charts the ascendency to the throne of Henry IV. Religious wars rage throughout the country and the de Medici clan clings desperately to the throne. Will the indomitable Catherine de Medici prove too strong a foe, or can Henry, King of Navarre, bring lasting peace to France?
