Elsinore | S1E3


Claudius has been sent to the mysterious - and magical - Kingdom of Carpathia to negotiate for the Princess of Carpathia to become King Hamlet's wife. In the process he learns some uncomfortable truths about himself and his brother. Set in an alternative Europe in the 1930s, Elsinore imagines the turbulent world of the Danish Court in events that take place some years before the story told in Shakespeare's Hamlet.
