World’s Greatest Palaces

Tuesdays at 8:30pm AEDT 

The World’s Greatest Palaces takes a behind the scenes look through the 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 who brought them to life. Palaces like London’s Hampton Court, where Henry VIII changed the course of history in his pursuit of Anne Boleyn; Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna where the six year old, boy genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart performed for the imperial family in 1762; and Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, a palace so beautiful that tourists are willing to trek through the Bavarian mountains just to catch a glimpse of it. The series covers 500 years of history, encapsulating royal powerhouses like the Tudors, The Habsburgs and the Bourbon dynasties. From the medieval Chateau de Fontainebleau in France, to Kensington Palace in the UK, which still houses the modern royals of today.
