While most Americans and Europeans are more familiar with the British or French monarchies, there have been incredible stories told about the kings and queens of other nations all over the world.

Her story unfolds across the seasons in a never before look at the life of a modern monarchy. More historical series like The Tudors explore the lives of Henry VIII and his wives.
