S3-E1 The Return of the King

S3-E1 The Return of the King



The historian examines the reign of Charles II, a period that saw the restoration of the English crown's authority through a series of well-executed political manoeuvres and forced the king to overcome the disasters of plague and the Great Fire of London. Charles's 25-year reign avoided the war of past years - allowing the foundation of the world's first modern state to be laid.
