Historians and broadcasters Peter Snow and Ann MacMillan tell the real stories of the most powerful men and women in British history.

Kings & Queens explores the lives, loves, triumphs and disasters of a monarchy that is the envy of the world. Snow and MacMillan offer a unique insight into those born to rule, whether villains or heroes – from cruel King John and warrior-king Edward III, to our own Elizabeth II: dutiful, discreet and the longest-reigning queen in the world.

This is the story of modern civilization, through the lens of those who have ruled.
