Synopsis

Raised from birth as a man, the Lady Oscar commands the palace guards at Versailles in the years before the French Revolution. Her beauty and noble spirit make her a shining figure in the eyes of both men and women but she is torn between her chosen life of service and duty to class and country and her own heart and desires. She lives as a noble amidst the opulence of Versailles but her keen senses and compassion are not blinded to the poverty of the French people.

Rose Versailles, one of the most influential stories to ever be written for it's stunning portrayal of the messed up societies of the 20th century. Written 35 years ago, Rose of Versailles remains as one of the greatest story to be written; a true masterpiece. A tragic, historic melodrama about the patriarchal societies of the 16th Century, forbidden love, and the harshness/corruption of reality/society that eventually lead up to the french revolution. I don't remember a single moment while reading the manga where I was left scratching my head, or feeling bored. Who knew learning history with a pinch of romance could be so amazing! read more
