Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander) was an 18th century queen married to the king, Christian (Mikkel Folsgaard).She was originally British and travelled to Denmark aged only fifteen for her marriage. Apparently largely ignored by her mentally unstable husband for three years, Caroline began a romance with Johann Friedrich Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen) and her second child was probably his. When the affair became public, the couple were arrested after a masked ball at Christansborg Castle.
Director Nikolaj Arcel wanted to base his film on the novel The Visit Of The Royal Physician by Per Olov Enquist but the rights to this book had already been sold elsewhere so he turned instead to Prinsesse af blodet, an erotic novel by Bodil Steensen-Leth which tells the story from the Queen's point of view. The film is in Danish with English subtitles. Certificate 15.
