Episodes 1 - 3
A Nation State, Aengla Land & Conquest
Dr David Starkey travels back through the history of the British monarchy, beginning with the violence and chaos of the Dark Ages, and eventually ending with the brutal murder of Richard the Second and bloody civil war.
It's a dramatic journey that covers everything from Alfred the Great and the Battle of Hastings, to the reigns of the three Edwards: father, son and grandson; and the real story of Shakespeare's kings.
Episode 1 - A Nation State
Dr Starkey begins his history of the British Monarchy in the violence and chaos of the Dark Ages. The time of a legendary world peopled by dragons and monsters and a time from which a uniquely English idea of monarchy emerged.
Episode 2 - Aengla Land
In this programme, Dr Starkey chronicles the stormy path of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of England. He tells how, assailed by a blitzkrieg from the Danes of King Canute, it survived to take its captor captive; and how, driven by civil strife it fell in the end to the knights of William the Conqueror.
Episode 3 - Conquest
The Battle of Hastings and the Norman Conquest are perhaps the most memorable events in English history. In this programme Dr David Starkey follows the fortunes of English and Normans alike as the direction of English kingship takes a radical new turn.
