This is a ribald though talkative look at the life and loves, mainly loves, of Henri IV, France's lecherous, 17th-century king. Henri (Francis Claude) has the misfortune of being married to a sharp-tongued woman but the good fortune of being king. That position nets him plenty of mistresses and an increasing number of illegitimate children. When the older king takes an interest in Charlotte (Daniele Gaubert) a teen forty years his junior, he opts to marry her off to a disinterested son (Jean Sorel) in order to have her nearby.
