Looking back at 1,500 years of history - from the fall of Rome until the fall of the guillotine - as seen through the eyes of the kings and queens of France...
Every episode of T+M starts with a re-telling of a story pulled from the history books, then we try to figure out what really happened:
1) Did two Queens take charge of Francian kingdoms and use them to attack each other?
2) Was Merovech, the first king of the Merovingians, descended from a minion sent by the god Neptune?
3) Did Clovis really stop in the middle of a battle to make a deal with God to convert to Christianity?
