2017 sees the Windsors celebrate a hundred years on the British throne. They are the most famous Royal Family in the world and have prospered, while other great dynasties have fallen. They have seen their relatives overthrown, exiled and murdered. They have survived family feuds, divorce, fire and betrayal.
This spectacular new series will tell the story of one of the great dynasties of recent history. It’s a gripping family saga which began in July 1917, when Britain was at war with Germany, and the British King, George V changed his family’s name from a German name, Saxe Coburg-Gotha, to the quintessentially British “Windsor”.
