The untold stories of incredible royal residences
Welcome to the world of the royal megastructure. This series takes a behind-the-scenes look through the gilded corridors of power in ten of the most opulent and historic royal residences on Earth. We reveal the stories behind the Kings and Queens who lived in these grand homes and uncover the secrets of the architects, engineers and courtiers that brought them to life.
Covering more than 500 years of history and encapsulating royal powerhouses like the Tudors, the Hapsburgs and the Bourbons, we cross the globe to explore everything from the medieval Chateau de Fontainebleau in France and the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, where six-year-old Mozart first performed for the imperial family, in 1762, to Kensington Palace in the UK, which still houses the modern royals today.
