    Behind the Legends - EP1: Leonidas

    The legendary Battle of Thermopylae has been told over and over and remains famous for an incredible act of valor : 300 Spartan warriors defending a narrow path against tens of thousands of Persians to protect the retreat of the Greek army. A symbol of courage, sacrifice and honor. But there’s more to the story as the Spartans weren’t actually alone at this moment. And Leonidas’ personality deserves some enlightenment.

    Behind the Legends - EP2: Cleopatra

    Who doesn’t know Cleopatra, legendary queen of Egypt ? A woman as beautiful as a goddess who claimed power in a world of men, seducing Roman emperor Julius Caesar and general Mark Antony before her tragic death. But this is just a small part of Cleopatra’s great accomplishments. The way she accessed the Egyptian throne and how she managed to stay on top during his reign reveal the personality of a true leader.

    Who is Jack the Ripper ? More than 130 years after the horrendous crimes that terrified the Whitechapel borough in London, the identity of the most famous English serial killer is still unknown.

    Behind the Legends - EP4: Marquis de Sade

    Behind the Legends - EP4: Marquis de Sade

    Writer and philosopher, the Marquis de Sade is a very controversial figure because of its texts, where erotism and pornography had an important place, along with cruelty, rape and murders. To such an extent that his name gave the root of the word "sadistic". Because of his work and his deviant behavior, he spent more than a third of his life in prison. But how did the heir of an ancient French noble family become this despicable yet legendary character ?

    Behind the Legends - EP5: Benjamin Franklin

    Behind the Legends - EP5: Benjamin Franklin

    As the only person to have signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Treaty of Alliance with France in 1778, Treaty of Paris in 1783, and U.S. Constitution in 1787, Benjamin Franklin remains in history as perhaps the most important Founding Fathers of the United States. And this even though he never ruled, earning him the title of "the only president of the United States who was never president of the United States". But behind the politician lies a great man of science responsible for a variety of inventions, starting with the lighting rod.

    Behind the Legends - EP6: Blackbeard

    Behind the Legends - EP6: Blackbeard

    Think of pirates and there’s a great chance that the first image that comes to your mind is a Blackbeard look alike : a cruel captain with a long beard and a hat, thirsty for blood, yelling at his men from the upper deck of his ship as he prepares to board an unfortunate merchant’s boat. Well, this has been the image of Blackbeard, alias Edward Teach, over the centuries. But the real Teach was not especially cruel and tyrannical, at least no more than any other pirate back in the days.
