The Power behind the Throne focuses on those individuals or organisations that held the real power behind the state over time. From Parliament challenging the power of the Monarchy, the mistresses that held the control of the powerful, how secrets could bring down the elite and how the military wielded the sword of power.

Debbie Kilroy (Get History)
And Many More.
