The Plantagenets - S1 Ep1 - The Devil's Brood
The Devil's Brood - Professor Robert Bartlett explores the foundations of the Plantagenets, England's most dysfunctional yet longest ruling royal dynasty. In a story of intrigue, treachery and violence, he tells how the family expanded their power beyond their French homeland and transformed the culture and politics of the British Isles. Bartlett explores how the first Plantagenet king, the fiery Henry II, won his crown and attempted to consolidate his power through marriage, conflict with the church and the introduction of the common law. But the greatest threat to Henry's rule came from his own wife and sons as the ruthless family turned on itself. (S.1,Ep.1) (From the UK) (Documentary) PG CC
