1863. Carlota takes the reins of a Second Empire that fades at times and will not rest until obtaining the support of the traditionalist forces of Europe, although this contradicts its ideals. However, the burden on his heart is another. His marriage is a farce: Maximilian lets her wither little by little, never giving her a single gesture of complicity or passion. Carlota, rebellious against the misfortune that tries to impose itself like its destiny, is dragged by a runaway love towards another man without foreseeing the consequences. Constanza Murrieta, chosen among all her ladies as her confidante, is the only person who knows this dark secret and, when she decides to play her cards for convenience, will betray Carlota without any qualms participating in the plan to alienate her, and will have in her hands the future The Empress and the Empire. An extraordinary novel about crushed loves, unspeakable secrets, hidden political interests, half-truths, betrayal and fortune, while a passionate portrait of an empire that only succeeded in fanning the flame of discord.
1863. Carlota toma las riendas de un Segundo Imperio que se desvanece por momentos y no descansará hasta lograr el apoyo de las fuerzas tradicionalistas de Europa, a pesar de que esto contradiga sus ideales. Sin embargo, es otra la carga que soporta su corazón. Su matrimonio es una farsa: Maximiliano la deja marchitarse poco a poco, sin dedicarle jamás un solo gesto de complicidad o pasión. Carlota, rebelada contra la desdicha que intenta imponerse como su destino, se deja arrastrar por un amor desbocado hacia otro hombre sin prever las consecuencias. Constanza Murrieta, elegida entre todas sus damas como su confidente, es la única persona que conoce este oscuro secreto y, cuando decide jugar sus cartas a conveniencia, traicionará sin escrúpulos a Carlota participando en el plan para enajenarla, y tendrá en sus manos el futuro de la emperatriz y del Imperio. Una extraordinaria novela sobre amores cruzados, ecretos inconfesables, intereses políticos ocultos, verdades a medias, traición y fortuna, al tiempo que un retrato apasionado de un imperio que no logró más que avivar la llama de la discordia.
