Exploring how, over the centuries, iconic queens wielded true power and influence, not simply through their accession to the throne, but through their strength of
character, intelligence and charm.
This series takes an in-depth look at the lives of famous queens to reassess their impact on history. Often thought to be bit-players in stories dominated by men, many queens wielded extraordinary power, and ruled in ways that far surpassed their male counterparts.
