The Sovereign's Servant (Russian: Слуга государев, Sluga Gosudarev) is a 2007 Russian war film written and directed by Oleg Ryaskov. It depicts the events of the Great Northern War, with a particular focus on the Battle of Poltava.

Plot[edit]

The action takes place at the time of the Swedish-Russian war of 1709. The King of France, Louis XIV, sends two duelists into exile. One of them is ordered to go to the camp of the King, Karl XII, of the Swedes and the other is sent to the camp of the Russian Tsar, Peter the First. Both Frenchmen face various dangers along their way. They witness the grand battle of Poltava from opposite sides. Court plots and romantic adventures stay in the past as both our milksops are plunged head first in the boiling pot of war and the horrors it brings into their lives.[1]
