Private Lives

From the time of the great Pharaohs of Egypt to the famous Kings and Queens of old England, the old adage has been proven time and again. Power corrupts and absolute power absolutely corrupts. Back when there were no TV cameras or news reporters to taint the fun of the rich and the powerful, the high and mighty did as they pleased. ‘Private Lives' is a six-part series which documents the hidden relationships of the Kings and Queens of England to Roman Emperors. Told by eminent historians, the private lives of prominent ancient rulers are explored, separating the myths from the facts revealing corruption and dishonesty are as old as mankind itself. Highlights of the series include exploring the private lives of Pharaohs and European Monarchs.
