Louis XI was an inspired strategist. So brilliantly did he master the art of setting traps for his enemies, he became known as the 'Universal Spider' in the courts of Europe. However, the hated Machiavellian king's grip on power was threatened by two formidable men: the Duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold, and Edward IV of York, King of England. From the royal Chateau d'Amboise to the Chateau de Langeais, the epic historical reconstructions and gripping narratives of this series reveal how the lust for power and personal obsessions of princes redrew the frontiers of France and other European nations.
