The Regency, which followed the long end of the reign of Louis XIV, was a troubled period, morals dissolved and business triumphed. The successor of Louis XIV, his great-grandson Louis XV being a minor, the Regency was ensured by his great-uncle, the Duke of Orleans, a notorious debauchee, surrounded by a court of prostitutes and delirious enjoyers. In Brittany, the Marquis de Pontcallec foments a plot to overthrow the Duke for the benefit of King Philippe V of Spain, grandson of Louis XIV and uncle of the young sovereign. He hoped to restore independence to Brittany and proclaim the Republic. Abbé Dubois, the regent's complaisant prime minister and ambitious manipulator, takes it upon himself to put an end to the conspiracy while using it to further his own ambition.
