Are you a fan of political scheming in royal families? Are you missing shows like Bridgerton and The Crown? If these answer to either of those questions was yes, then you’ll want to add Netflix’s Danish romantic comedy Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction to the top of your watchlist.

This intimate and romantic new movie centers on a complicated royal family in desperate need of an heir to retain their claim to the throne. The Grand Duchess is determined to marry off her son, the Crown Prince Lothar, and have him produce an heir to prevent their cousins from usurping their power. The only problem is that Prince Lothar is hopeless at romance.

Enter Cazotte, a self-professed romance master and royal painter. The Grand Duchess hires him to teach Prince Lothar how to woo a lady, but Cazotte soon finds himself in the midst of romantic turmoil and realizes he might not actually know a thing about the art of lovemaking.
