France. The late 1780s.
This yuri (girl-love) manga tells the story of Oscar, a girl who dresses as a man and is groomed to be the leader of Marie Antoinette's Palace Guards.
The women of the court are jealous of Oscar's attention to other women, in particular her relationship with Rosalie.
But as the French Revolution explodes around her, Oscar is torn between her class loyalty and her sense of justice, as well as between being a woman and her role as a military fighter.
In addition to being a series of 10 manga books, "The Rose Of Versailles" was adapted for the theater, an anime TV show, a live action movie and even a ballet!
