PowerUnknown - 2015
Dr. Amanda Foreman travels to Istanbul, Germany, Paris and Delhi to explore the stories of women behind some of the most powerful empires of the Middle Ages. From 6th-century Byzantium to Medieval Europe, the Ottoman Court to the Mughal Empire, Amanda looks behind the male-dominated perceptions of these empires to reveal the strength of women at the heart of power and influence. This is the story of Empress Theodora, Hildegard of Bingen, Christine de Pizan, Roxelana, and the Mughal Empress Nur Jahan. These women resisted and rebelled from within the confines of the palace, the convent and the harem. They demanded to be heard, fought to be respected and insisted on having their own authority.
