In the eighteenth century, Lady Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, at the British court, held the highest office that could be vested in a woman. A close confidant of Queen Anne, Sarah has a friendship with her tinged with relationships of domination. The sovereign, who suffers from gout, is indeed relying on this gray eminence which does not miss an opportunity to exert its influence on the royal decisions. While the British soldiers, launched in the War of Spanish Succession, are campaigning on the continent, the balance of the court is shaken by the arrival of Abigail Hill, a fallen cousin of Sarah whose latter makes her room maid. Ambitious, Abigail manages to win the trust and affection of the queen, which threatens Sarah's favorite status.
