The Firm: Blood, Lies, and Royal Succession
Thomas is not only a regular contributor to the world's #1 history podcast, but is proving to be the darling of the series with his expert commentary, assessment of Royal history, and sometimes though provoking analysis. Tallying up a majority of the comments, contributions, and comments, throughout the chapters of this series, Thomas more than proves his place as a world-class Royal Expert and Commentator. The Firm, Blood, Lies and Royal Succession is a 12+ chapter (one release per week) investigation into the secrets, scandals, and constitutional crises of the most famous – and infamous – family in the world. From ruthless Virgin Queens to traitorous wartime Kings, from madness and revolution to forbidden sex and shocking deaths, from jealousy and rivalry to brothers and sisters torn apart, this is the real, unvarnished history of the last five centuries of Britain’s Royal Family. We’re going to reveal the real stories behind the airbrushed history book tales, and we’re going to show the lengths to which the self-styled “Firm” will go in order to keep those stories secret – and to ensure the survival of the Royal Brand… no matter what the cost.
