Charles II: The Power and the Passion

Drama2003
2

King Charles II was one of Britain's most charismatic monarchs. His 25-year reign was nothing if not cataclysmic: London was decimated by the Plague and the Great Fire, while England's resources were constantly depleted by wars with Holland and France. Despite all this, he nurtured the wittiest, most decadent Royal Court of all time, while entertaining an array of magnificent mistresses from sex-addict Barbara Villiers to the French spy Louise de Keroualle. Racy, visceral and violent, this is a romp through a period of history when to move fast was to capture the prize: in politics and in love. Period drama starring Rufus Sewell, Rupert Graves and Diana Rigg.
