Episode details

The real life historical tyrants behind the gruesome tales of Charles Perrault, the Grimms and Joseph Jacob's tales is the subject of this episode. Henry VIII and Conomor the Cursed committed some horrific deeds in their lifetimes but are these stories really about them? Find out as I tell you my version of the well known folktale, 'Bluebeard's Chamber.'
