Ancients Behaving Badly
What does it take to make your mark in History? How do you become a truly great leader?
“The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.”
We examine some of the world's most fascinating, iconic, mythic, truly tyrannical leaders, all which each demonstated a ruthlessness which is staggering by today's standards.
Through expert interviews, leading CGI effects and re-enactments, we will investigate the truth behind these legendary characters and how they really came to power, (usually killing off family members to take over and take on the leading roles).
We explore how they treated their subjects, friends and family; why they were so successful in keeping their power and most importantly the battlefield leadership they demonstrated.
We cut through folklore to present an accurate portrait of our characters. We use the latest historical discoveries, forensic science tests, archaeological finds, analysis of torture instruments and battlefield dynamics to shed light on these leaders.
