Balkan Royals

Format: 1 x 52
Broadcaster(s):  ZDF/ARTE
Available in HD

After the fall of the iron curtain, old royal dynasties experienced an impressive comeback in some of the post-communist states. In Bulgaria, Romania and Macedonia especially, the once-ostracized aristocracy has found new meaning in the modern age.

This documentary paints an intimate portrait of the last surviving Balkan monarchs in their own words - Bulgaria’s Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Montenegro’s heir apparent, Nicholas, Crown Prince of Montenegro as well as the already deceased Michael I of Romania and his daughter Crown Princess Margareta.

With rare archive footage and first-hand testimonies, we see how the royal houses survived the most tumultuous times in history to remain an essential part of their respective countries' national identity.
