** Louis XIV is depicted as unmarried, but in 1662 when the film is set, he'd already been married for two years.

*** Far from being an underground and persecuted sect, the Society of Jesus was one of the most influential Christian congregations in the Early Modern Period, running numerous schools and universities. While the Jesuits admittedly did face suppression in many parts of the world, this didn't happen until the ''eighteenth'' century -- although England admittedly had a head-start in the 1500s-1600s.

*** It didn't happen in Catholic countries until the 18th century. Go to England in the 17th century and the Jesuits were very much an underground and persecuted order.

** At no point is it made clear that the Jesuits are a religious order of priests and brothers, properly known as the Society of Jesus. Aramis, their head, identifies himself as the "General of the Order of Jesuits", while the correct term is "Superior General of the Society of Jesus". Besides Aramis, the other Jesuits in the film don't wear clerical clothing, so it makes them look like a cabal akin to the Assassins or Templars in ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' - especially since a Jesuit (or suspected Jesuit) in disguise tries to kill Louis. Far from being an underground and persecuted sect, the Jesuits were one of the most influential Christian groups in the Early Modern Period, running schools and universities. What's more, in real life Louis ''never had any problems'' with the Jesuits; he was actually influenced by them in the latter half of his reign, and he had a Jesuit confessor. He ''did,'' however, order the persecution of the Huguenots and Jansenists, both of which ''were'' persecuted theological movements.

** Louis XIV really had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_I,_Duke_of_Orl%C3%A9ans a brother named Philippe]], but that's where the similarity ends. Philippe wasn't Louis's twin brother and his life had never been a secret.
