Iconic women of history are chronicled in this documentary series. From legendary rulers like Catherine the Great, Queen Elizabeth, and Cleopatra, to brave rebels like Joan of Arc and Sophie Scholl, this series provides an intimate look at larger than life figures who shaped history.
Frauen, die Geschichte machten (original title).
From Cleopatra to Elizabeth I and Sophie Scholl – they are all women from vastly contrasting eras and backgrounds, but with one thing in common: they are some of the most influential women in history. Powerful and helpless, popular and scorned, determined and desperate – each one of them stood out from her peers in some way.
This dramatized series portrays these remarkable women in unprecedented detail, and examines their lives both in a contemporary context as well as from a historical perspective.
