Lost Royals

Lost Royals lifts the lid on royal indiscretions from the past and sets out to track down some of the thousands of unknowing illegitimate descendants of English Royalty. In Britain this program might be considered an entertaining piece of "TV treason." For American audiences, it is truly a guilty pleasure! Host Jennie Bond, a former royal correspondent, enlists renowned genealogists Stephen Thomas and Anthony Adolph to accompany her on the trail of unfaithful monarchs. They come up with the fascinating history of philanderers, such as Charles II, and trace the lives of the children they fathered. Thomas and Adolph investigate more than 900 years of history to find descendants to the throne who have no knowledge of their heritage.
