Rose Of Versailles Revival

This year is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Marie-Antoinette (born in Vienna in 1755) and it seems to be a good pretext for a revival of Rose Of Versailles, document.write(“”); this epic anime drama about a passionate love set with the French Revolution as backdrop.
