Britain's Bloodiest Dynasty: The Plantagenets
Ep: 3 "Edward II: Revenge"
Murder, betrayal, tyranny… this is the real Game of Thrones. Out of the chaos, darkness and violence of the Middle Ages, one family rose to seize control of England, ruthlessly ruling the country for over three hundred years. It’s the true story of overbearing fathers, weak sons, treacherous allies, adulterous wives, and best friends turned mortal enemies. With power-obsessed rulers driven by jealousy, hatred and revenge, the Plantagenet dynasty is more shocking, brutal and astonishing than anything you’ll find in fiction.
