National Geographic Channel’s Icons of Power examines the politics and intrigue surrounding these great figures in history: Henry VIII, Napoleon, Peter the Great and Catherine the Great. Featuring dramatic recreations, each program tells the story of how each person changed the face of history forever. Includes the following 4 amarays: Empress of Ambition, The Madness of Henry VIII, Napoleon’s Final Battle and The Wrath of the Tsar.

The program reveals how Henry VIII became engulfed in a cloud of wicked scandal for his six wives, two of whom he divorced by ordered execution. It tells of his decision to spin off the Catholic Church into an Anglican arm, in order to engineer his own church-sanctioned divorce – a path that spun forth century upon century of controversy and whose legacy persists to this day, in Anglicanism and the separation of church and state. To weave its tale, this special relies heavily on historical records, period artwork, and interviews with contemporary historians of the Tudor period.

Napoleon’s Final Battle. By exploring the astonishing and dramatic course of Napoleon’s 100 Days - the period during which Napoleon escaped from exile and marched on Paris to conquer Europe once again – The Emperor Strikes Back opens the essential window that reveals the inside story behind modern history’s greatest conqueror. Critical moments from the end of his career - from Napoleon’s initial abdication, failed suicide and banishment to his unprecedented return to Imperial glory and his ultimate humiliating defeat - dovetail with flashbacks from throughout his life and military career. The show recreates moments of high-stakes political brinkmanship and flashes of military genius - the legendary turning points that transformed a short and short-tempered artillery officer into a towering giant of history.

Join Icons of Power as we get swept up in the whirlwind of Russia’s greatest Tsar, following his journey from traumatic childhood to his triumphs on the battlefields and seas of Eurasia. Lush, dramatic reenactments and rich cinematography will heighten our feel for the terrible bloodshed of Peter’s youth, the evolution of his unrelenting passions, and the obsession with everything new that would define his life and his reign.

Join Icons of Power as we venture into the court of the Empress Catherine the Great and bear witness to epic history and scandals of truly royal proportions. With sweeping cinematography and rich, dramatic reenactments soaked in 18th Century detail, we will trace Catherine’s journey from a humble, impoverished home in Germany to the throne of an empire that spanned two- thirds of the globe. We will follow the empress to war, to court, and even to bed. From the scorched battlefields of the Crimea to the gilded palaces of St. Petersburg, we will venture deep into the world of the Empress Catherine - a world of secret trysts and cunning deception, of conquest and glory - and bring to life the characters and events that shaped her reign.
