Mothers, Murderers And Mistresses: Empresses Of Ancient Rome
3 x 60'
Historian Catherine Edwards travels across what was the heart of the Roman Empire, lifting the lid on the women behind some of the most fearsome emperors of all time. Some were PR experts and fashion role models, others politicians and plotters. This series shows that women could pull the strings of power too, but only at great personal risk.
