Period Dramas. In 1845, Alexandre Dumas wrote a historical novel about the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre, centered on the young princess Margaret of Valois, daughter of the scheming queen Catherine de’ Medici, who was largely responsible for all the bloodshed. Patrice Chéreau’s film adaptation is widely recognized as one of the most lavish (and blood-spattered) French period dramas.
