Plot Summary
Cardinal Richelieu (George Arliss) is the chief minister to King Louis XIII (Edward Arnold), but everyone in the French royal court knows that Richelieu, not the monarch, holds the country's real power. The ineffectual king remains unaware of Richelieu's many backroom dealings, which include negotiating with neighboring countries, making plans for war and trying to engineer a relationship between a young woman in his care (Maureen O'Sullivan) and a handsome, politically connected Frenchman.
