Asia's Monarchies
Asia's Monarchies 5 x 60'
As Asia continues to be the fastest-growing economic region in the world, will Asia’s monarchies be able to keep the pace?
Asia’s Monarchies are all unique, but there is one thing they all share in common - all are at a fascinating point in their various histories.
In this five-part series we journey to the heart of these beautiful lands to understand the relationship between the people and their monarchs. To many, their monarchy is an anachronism – an institution that hampers progression. To others it is the heart and soul of their nation, part of their shared history and a guard against the dangers of modernity. What is clear is that Asia's monarchies are at a tipping-point and that what happens to each of them will hasten a new era that will affect not only the East but the whole world.
