The series is set in France before & during the French Revolution and is the story of two women: Queen Marie Antoinette and a soldier named Oscar François de Jarjayes. A historical romance drama dealing with themes of sexuality, politics, and revolution, The Rose of Versailles had a huge impact on the Shōjo genre. It would later get a 40 episode manga adaption in 1979, as well as several manga spin-offs, musicals, and a live-action film.
