The Sons of the Great North title card


  • Introduction: Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Xbox present Echoes of Valhalla: Life of Vikings the podcast.
  • Narrator: Listen... Listen... Beware of the Silence. The land still echoes with the battle-cries. Listen.... This is the story of my ancestors , the story of my people—the children of the great north. You may have heard it from the mouths of our enemies or read the words written by Christian monks, but before I disappear—I, the heiress wish to tell the tale of what really happened. This is our truth... the truth of the Vikings.
  • Lucie Malbos: In the beginning, being a Viking—
  • Narrator: —Lucie Malbos, lecturer in Medieval History at the University of Poitiers
  • Lucie Malbos: —didn't mean belonging to an ethnicity or to a particular population, it was a way to make a living. It wasn't about who you are but rather what you did.
  • Alban Gautier: In Ancient Scandinavian (in Norse), "Viking" refers to the activity of going on expedition by sea to loot.—
  • Narrator: —Alban Gautier, Professor of Medieval History at the University of Caen
  • Alban Gautier: —A Viking is someone who goes viking, meaning someone who sets sail hoping to become rich.
  • Narrator: This is where is all began. Imagine a majestic landscape; snow-capped mountains, rocky overhangs, green valleys, winding silver rivers. This land was the birthplace of my ancestors. Before becoming traders and warriors they were farmers, fishermen, free men, and tireless workers. They bred pigs, cattle, and chicken. They grew oats, barley, wheat, peas, turnips, and cabbages. But the land was rough and not always giving. When this occurred the men would dream of a land elsewhere that was milder beyond the sea.
  • Norse Farmer 1: Ah, look at this soil, nothing else will grow here. The harsh winter has not been kind to us.
  • Norse Farmer 2: Maybe when the sun returns and—
  • Norse Farmer 1: —No, listen to me my son. If I had the choice I would have stayed and worked the land until my last breath. But its the will of the gods. I have to accept Sven's proposition, and sail to greener lands.
  • Narrator: So little is known about our people. Yet there are so many misconceptions that they were barbarians, looters, mercenaries even. While it is true that my people can be cruel on the battlefield, easily offended to the slightest insult to the clan, and quarrelsome even at home, they also enjoy sitting by the hearth in the peace of the skáli (the main area where the whole family gathers together).
  • Norse Woman: See how your son looks at you, he's already proud of you.
  • Norse Man 1: One day I'll be proud of him. He'll be a great warrior just like his father, you can tell.
  • Norse Woman: Let him learn to walk before putting an axe in his hands, he's so young. Put another log on the fire to keep us warm.
  • Narrator: And disagreeing with her was out of the question. While men give orders on the battlefield make no mistake, we women are the uncontested leaders of the household. We reign supreme at home.
  • Lucie Malbos: The free married woman is the guardian of the household when her husband's away on an expedition. And what symbolizes her responsibilities and duties at home is the key-chain she usually has on her belt. Despite all this, she's not equal to men. She can't partake in politics and legal affairs.
  • Narrator: Arts and crafts play an essential part in our culture. We sculpt wood, amber, ivory, and blow glass. We have gold at the tips of our fingers. We make unbelievably refined jewelry that turns women into goddesses, and of course, we have mastered the art of weapon-making. As worthy disciples of Völund, the god of forges, our blacksmiths are genuine masters in their domain.
  • Norse Man 2: Blacksmith! Blacksmith!
  • Norse Blacksmith: I am here, on the other side.
  • Norse Man 2: Ah, I can't hear the sound of your hammer. Does that mean my axe is ready?
  • Norse Blacksmith: Yes, I just finished working on it. Took me all night, here it is look.
  • Norse Man 2: By Thor! What a blade, it's beautifully finished. You outdid yourself blacksmith!
  • Norse Blacksmith: Take it, and tell me how it feels.
  • Norse Man 2: Ah, haha! It's perfectly balanced, it's a joy to hold. Can I try it out on this log?
  • Norse Blacksmith: Haha, that is what it's there for.
  • Norse Man 2: What power, I can't wait to test it in battle.
  • Norse Blacksmith: You'll soon have the chance. I hear the day of battle is drawing closer.
  • Norse Man 2: Good! I'd rather split a skull than log. Hahaha!
  • Narrator: His joy was far from misplaced, the blacksmith was right. A great battle was brewing. The day before during the þing (the solemn assembly), my people had decided ally with chief Ivarr Ragnarsson, known as Ivar the Boneless. In those days, wars between rival kingdoms were common. Each wished to extend their power over the vast lands to the south. But Ivar was by far the most fearsome of them all. He was said to have been a berserkr, a wild warrior endowed with sacred strength just like in the sagas. He is believed to have had uncontrollable rage and caused immeasurable destruction, but above all else he was cunning. He already ruled over a large swathe of land but wanted to assert his power at all costs, even the cost of blood.
  • Ivarr Ragnarsson: I, Ivarr Ragnarsson, swear to lead you to victory! Pledge your allegiance, bow down to my rule! You shall not be disappointed, you shall swim in glory and wealth if you follow me! But be warned, whoever dares to betray me will be judged by my axe!
  • Narrator: Ivarr was a man of his word, the alliance was sealed.
  • Lucie Malbos: Ivarr Ragnarsson, as his name alludes to, is the son of Ragnar—a legendary person whose journey is difficult to trace.
  • Ryan Lavelle: This term "berserkergang", that a warrior might get into such a rage—
  • Narrator: —Ryan Lavelle, professor of History of the Dark Ages at the University of Winchester
  • Ryan Lavelle: —that they bite the edge of their shields and froth at the mouth, tear off their clothes or might be wearing the fur of a bear. This is something of a legend of late Viking Age, even of the later Middle Ages themselves when Icelandic storytellers were sat around the fireside.
  • Narrator: Dawn had just broken, and men had already gathered in the early morning light. The mist was beginning to lift over the plains, the green lands glimmered in the morning dew. Who could have thought that mere moments from then this peaceful haven would welcome such carnage?
  • Ivarr Ragnarsson: Sons of the great north, my brethren! Wield your weapons, make the earth quake, and fill the skies with your cries of fury! If we are victorious, tonight we shall feast at the banquet with our wives! And if we fall we shall sit in the great company of the Valkyrie, splendor of Valhalla. We fear not death, let Odin lead us to victory!
  • Narrator: It appears that Odin had heard Ivarr's declamation and that the Valkyrie had lent wings to the warriors. They descended upon their enemies like a metal whirlwind. The battle raged on until midday. Yes, the gods gave us victory, but a terrible victory it was. The plains were drenched in blood and scattered with lifeless bodies.
  • Norse Man 3: My arm... I got hit with a spear. I killed my opponent... look.
  • Norse Man 4: I am here, my brother. You are suffering, but without you we may never have won this battle. Show me your wounds.
  • Norse Man 3: What makes you smile?
  • Norse Man 4: Ha. You remind me of the god Týr, who sacrificed his arm to conquer the wolf Fenrir. I am lucky to have you by my side.
  • Norse Man 3: You think I'll lose my arm?
  • Norse Man 4: No, no. We will tend to it and soon you will be wielding your axe, ready to strike down new enemies.
  • Norse Man 3: Ah, that's a relief. I'd like to be as brave as Týr but keep my arms and legs if at all possible.
  • Norse Man 4: Haha, at least the pain hasn't dulled your sense of humor. Rest now and do not forget to pray for those we have lost.
  • François Emion: Scandinavians fight against themselves and steal from each other—
  • Narrator: —François Emion, professor of Nordic Studies at the Sorbonne University
  • François Emion: Before Norway, Sweden, and Denmark were unified, they were little principalities—small kingdoms—that waged war on each other or partnered up depending on the situation. It's a rather unstable society.
  • Lucie Malbos: These clans are separated by mountains which can be very tall and covered with a lot of snow or for example; in Norway they're separated by dense forests, which means communication isn't easy. This explains why Scandinavian societies were organized in a divided, separated, and distinct fashion.
  • Narrator: For the honor of our banner my people were ready to sacrifice both their arms. But once again, the gods had spared them. Alas this was not the fate of some companions who had fallen on the plain. That night, their funeral was celebrated we called upon völva, our priestess and prophetess. Following the ancient traditions, the deceased's eyes and mouth were shut, their bodies were washed, their hair combed, and nails were cut. They were given their weapons to help on the arduous journey that would lead them to Valhalla. The priestess said a few final words before one of us set the funeral pyre ablaze.
  • Völva: We honor our men felled in combat. May the fire cleanse their corpses. May the earth welcome their ashes. May the soaring raven lead them to the kingdom of the dead.
  • François Emion: There are a certain amount of sights in the south of Norway where there are gigantic grave mounds that haven't been pillaged from unlike those in the Egyptian pyramids that have been stolen from all through history. In these pyramids we found boats in which an aristocrat was laid to rest. Some of these boats contained cremations and sometimes there were other bodies too, but we don't know if they were slaves who were killed when their master died or if they were people who were buried afterwards.
  • Narrator: The men and women of the village gather to give thanks to the gods, through offerings and sacrifices. Young women formed a circle around the priestess, they chanted sacred formulas to look into the future by contacting the norns who control our destiny. Our people still adhere to the age-old precepts of forn seiðr, our religious tradition.
  • Völva: For you, Odin, King of the Gods, we sacrifice this horse. To you Tyr, god of war, we sacrifice this bull. May their flesh give you thanks for our victory. May their blood be evidence of adoration.
  • Lucie Malbos: The priestess is some kind of witch prophetess, a rather marginal person in Scandinavian society. We generally call upon her services during crises, to find out the secret of the gods. This figure is feared and dreaded, even Odin calls upon this priestess to learn his destiny.
  • Narrator: After the ceremonies, a great banquet was held to celebrate victory. The table was covered in vittles, the wine was flowing, the men feasted by the blazing fire. The moon was full, the sky glittered with myriad stars as if Valhalla itself was lighting up the banquet, as if our fallen brothers were trying to feast in our company.
  • Lucie Malbos: The leader who wants to show off his power, greatness, and wealth must do it in a visible and conspicuous way. One of the best ways to show off this power and wealth is to organize a big feast.
  • Thierry Noël: The Vikings are players—
  • Narrator: —Thierry Noël, content and inspiration consultant at Ubisoft
  • Thierry Noël: They played famous verbal jousting games called flyting, and that is exactly what we see in the game.
  • Narrator: In the middle of the celebration, Ivarr demanded silence, he had great news to give.
  • Ivarr Ragnarsson: Listen, this victory is a sign that Odin is with us! But it is just the beginning my friends, my brethren... Will you follow me into battle across the seas? I vow that I will lead the way and we will wage war in every part of the world.
  • Narrator: A rousing speech, cries of joy carried all the way to the coast. The men were anxious to take part in this conquest which promised to be extraordinary. In the event of victory it guaranteed titles, honors, and fortune. And if they were to fall in battle then they knew they would witness the glorious, the majestic, gates of Valhalla.

Dragon of the Seas title card


  • Introduction: Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Xbox present Echoes of Valhalla: Life of Vikings the podcast.
  • Narrator: Can you hear the sea whisper? She was there at the start, at the beginning of time and will remain unchanged to the end of days. How peaceful she seems, quietly ebbing and flowing and yet...
  • Norse Man 1: She's going to capsize!
  • Norse Man 2: Stay the course!
  • Norse Man 1: We can't! The storm is too strong!
  • Norse Man 2: Stay the course I said! And grab hold of something! Now is no time to give into fear!
  • Norse Man 1: Look out!
  • Narrator: Our army had set sail for the great island to the West. Under the command of chief Ivarr Ragnarsson and his brothers, our warriors had set off to conquer the land of the Angles and the Saxons. Such an adventure was worthy of our ancient sagas. Crossing the North Sea was the first of many dangers to overcome, and from atop this cliff I will tell you how things transpired. And from here, the view is magnificent. The sea unravels as far as the eye can see, it's endless blue surface shimmering like a sheet of silver scales.
  • Lucie Malbos: Norse, the ancient language of Scandinavia—
  • Narrator: —Lucie Malbos, lecturer in Medieval History at the University of Poitiers—
  • Lucie Malbos: —has influenced in particular the vocabularies of French and English. Particulary words relating to the sea and boats. Terms such as "keel", "stern" and "sail" as well as more common words such as "creek" and holr (spelled H-O-L-R in Norse), meaning "hollow" which is "hole" in English.
  • Narrator: In the months leading up to the journey, every shipyard in the region was in a frenzy. Shipwrights, ropemakers, blacksmiths, hundreds of workers toiled relentlessly to build a fleet that would carry the warriors to England. Building each one of those ships required no fewer than twenty oak or pine trees. The master shipwright was infused with ancestral knowhow, perfected from one generation to the next, to give life to faster and nimbler vessels capable of surviving the high seas. With their noble curves, extreme proportions and magnificent animals erect on the prow the boats looked like genuine sea-dragons.
  • Norse Worker: Good day Olaf sir. Well, what do you think sir?
  • Olaf: No, no. We need to start again.
  • Norse Worker: Really? But that'll take days!
  • Olaf: It'll take as long as it needs to! We need a longer hull and a rounder stern.
  • Norse Worker: Sir, it simply isn't possible.
  • Olaf: Do you want the deaths of our warriors on your hands?
  • Norse Worker: N-no, no master.
  • Olaf: Then get to work, and hop to it.
  • Lucie Malbos: The drakkar ships such as we know it never actually existed. It's purely a legend from the late 19th century that came from a mistaken translation of a word that does not exist in Old Norse dreki or the plural drakkar. Originally however, this term didn't refer to the ship itself, but the figurehead at the bow of the ship carved to look like a dragon.
  • Narrator: After months of grueling toil in the Shipyard, the fleet was finally ready. The Great Army had gathered by the coast. Once supplies had been properly inventoried they were loaded onto the boats.
  • Thierry Noël: Loading supplies and people onboard was difficult because the ships were very narrow—
  • Narrator: —Thierry Noël, content and inspiration consultant at Ubisoft—
  • Thierry Noël: trunks for supplies also served as benches for rowers, thus they could be moved around as needed but there wasn't much room. They also created more space by placing their shields on the sides of the boat which helped block ocean spray, and of course there's another issue that we don't think of which is all the ropes criss-crossing the ship. Another considerable inconvenience for the boatmen.
  • Narrator: On the final night before embarking, a strange atmosphere came over the camp. It was the night of the summer solstice. The warriors said goodbyes to their loved ones, they would be leaving the land of their ancestors. Some feasted and drank for courage, others prayed to the gods for safe passage. Yet the völva had been reassuring, many spirits had come to her to reveal what would happen on their journey.
  • Völva: Listen, listen to me. I bring you good news! I feel that Njörðr will be merciful, rest assured he will calm the waves and fill your sails until you land safely. Warriors rejoice, the time will soon come your for you to slay your enemies once again.
  • Narrator: Patience, you will be given many an opportunity to fight, patience. That night one warrior in particular was restless and sleepless. He came to the very cliff I stand upon to stare at the stars and meditate his plan. It was chief Ivarr Ragnarsson, nicknamed Ivarr the Boneless, this conquest had become a personal matter to him. A matter of revenge, his father, the legendary Ragnar Lodbrok had set foot in England before him to his great misfortune. King Ælla had captured him and put him to death in a very cruel manner. Legend has it he was thrown naked into a pit of snakes.
  • Ivarr Ragnarsson: I have sworn to avenge you father and this time I will not fail. Ælla will die by my hands and even if Odin decides to call me to his table and this fight proves to be my last I will not take leave of this Earth until I have avenged you. The blood of that cursed king will drip from my blade.
  • Narrator: This time he would set sail on his journey backed by a swarm of determined Vikings. The greatest Viking army ever raised to cross the North Sea.
  • Thierry Noël: Ragnar would have been captured in Northumbria by King Ælla and put to death in a most heinous way. Though it's purely legendary of course, we can't say with certainty what motivated the Vikings to attack England at that time. What's likely however, is that the attacks were coordinated. Even though Vikings operated in small groups, we know from the historical record of an Irish king that some Vikings attacked from Ireland after waging war against him. That's typical Viking opportunism, all other battlefronts were drawn back in order to focus efforts on England. Where they perhaps felt they had an easier target.
  • Narrator: The big day is finally upon us, ravens are circling in the skies. It is a good omen. The sun has not yet risen and men are hurrying along to board the ships as quickly as possible.
  • Norse Man 3: Go on, get on with it! Push, harder.
  • Norse Man 4: Load the provisions, get on board. Prepare to cast off.
  • Norse Man 3: Don't lose courage and remember the words of the völva, Njörðr is with us. Are you listening men? Faster! Don't let the gods down.
  • Narrator: And they were off finally. Spurred by their emotions after such a long wait, the men row with fantastic energy. Their faces whipped with the sea spray, the proud sea-dragons crash through the waves as if they were flying. They heave at the oars and very lightly touch the horizon. The warriors cast one last glance at the shore while it is still in sight. Will they ever set eyes again on the land of their forefathers? Will death mow them down in a faraway land?
  • Lucie Malbos: Over time, the Vikings learned the strengths and weaknesses of Western Europe and became more and more emboldened.
  • Thierry Noël: We think of Vikings as these towering warriors, but in fact they weren't necessarily than anyone else. They did though, have methods at their disposal for complete disruption. Organizing fatal charges against the enemy, circumventing their defenses on all sides, et cetera. This is something that we'll show you in the game.
  • Narrator: The Viking cherish the sea as a means to escape towards unknown lands, new horizons.
  • Norse Man 5: Lost in thought, eh?
  • Norse Man 6: Oh, I was just wondering if there were lands beyond the land of England.
  • Norse Man 5: Possibly, but you'll have to wait for our next voyage to go exploring.
  • Norse Man 6: Then I hope the gods are listening, as I plan to go to the ends of the Earth.
  • Norse Man 5: Well, for now let's stay focused on our current destination.
  • Norse Man 6: Alright, alright. I know what I'm doing.
  • Narrator: Our ships have drawn countless wakes that the seas have erased. The Vikings have learned to tame the immense blue expanse better than anyone else.
  • François Emion: If we take Norway for example—
  • Narrator: —François Emion, professor of Nordic Studies at the Sorbonne University
  • François Emion: There are fjords that cut into the land for dozens of kilometers. Bordered by cliffs, dozens and even hundreds of meters high. In order to get from one place to another, you had to travel by boat. They traded with the Sámi people for furs and products derived from the walrus to then take ivory and rope made from seal or walrus skin to markets all over Europe. There was much to be made of this trade, the trade routes navigated across the coast of Norway will eventually give the country its name from Norþweg meaning "the way to the north".
  • Narrator: It has been a week since the ships set off for the great island, but it is essential to stay the course. This crossing was a far cry from our usual coastal navigation, but our seamen are never at a loss when it comes to being resourceful. They use whatever they have at their disposal to guide themselves; the movement of the water, the direction the wind blows, all these subtle signs. At night they watch the North Star and daytime the Sun provided they can see it. When the clouds cover the skies we have the Sunstone, a magical instrument devised by the Viking.
  • Norse Man 7: Do you think we're lost?
  • Norse Man 8: No, look. The sun is hiding right there.
  • Norse Man 7: Are you sure? I don't see anything.
  • Norse Man 8: Eh, you can see it with this stone. We need to tack to starboard. Push sail while the wind's rising, tack starboard.
  • François Emion: We think the Sunstone was a type of quartz that polarized light so that even in cloudy conditions you could find the sun's position, but this fact is still being debated.
  • Lucie Malbos: It seems that when the Vikings discovered Iceland they had ravens onboard, and they set them free to see if they were near land.
  • Narrator: The days at sea can be grueling, the constant sway day and night can make you mad. Life onboard, the cold rain, and promiscuity between boatsmen required an iron-strong discipline. Everyone has a role and should never step out of place.
  • Norse Man 9: 水手,What supplies do we have left?
  • Norse Man 10: Unfortunately, just a few dried fish, some salted meat and um... Oh, bread.
  • Norse Man 9: Oh, well make sure the crew can hold on for another while, but also, be careful not to ration us too much, because it could weaken us. I don't want our warriors to be weak when we get to shore.
  • Norse Man 10: I'll do my best, But I just hope völva was right, because we won't last much longer like this.
  • Narrator: Despite the precautions, supplies start to run out. For the sailor in charge of supplies, keeping hungry men to shape is a real feat. But shortages are nothing, the worst is yet to come.
  • Norse Man 11: The wind's picking up!
  • Norse Man 12: Oh, it looks like Njörðr's wrath is brewing! The swells are getting bigger and bigger!
  • Norse Man 11: Quick, bring down the mast!
  • Norse Man 12: The waves are too high! We're going to capsize!
  • Norse Man 11: 救命啊!
  • Narrator: The sea would would serve as their tomb. Only one boat had sunk, the rest of the fleet had been spared. Njörðr's wrath finally died down, the storm gave way to normal seas. They now needed to get back on normal course and row endlessly. How many days had gone by? How many weeks? Eventually in such circumstances all notions of time and space are lost. But one morning, suddenly England appears. These are the shores of East Anglia, but the men are not yet aware of that. They believe they have landed in Northumbria. Soon the locals will see the sea-dragons emerge from the mist and know exactly what those menacing creatures mean. As it is not their first encounter with a Viking.
  • Ryan Lavelle: Viking ships such as the one at Gjellestad in Norway—
  • Narrator: —Ryan Lavelle, professor of History of the Dark Ages at the University of Winchester—
  • Ryan Lavelle: —were ideally suited for amphibious raiding, they could come right up to the coast. Come right onto the beach. The keels of these ships, at the bottom of the hull were very strongly built and could stand a great deal of punishment.
  • Narrator: On the island, the mere mention of the Viking sent shivers down their spines. Nobody had forgotten the Lindisfarne raid, nor the expedition of King Ragnar, Ivarr's father, but that was nothing compared to what the Great Army would unleash. Ivarr would display the full measure of his power, his vengeance promised to be righteous. Having tamed the seas, the Viking were about to make the earth tremble.

Birth of an Empire title card


The Dawn of a New Era title card



Norse mythology is a very rich universe, deeply ingrained in the traditions and customs of the Middle Age Scandinavian peoples. Gods and men walk alongside giants, elves, dwarfs [sic] and all manners of magical creatures. This world was created by the powerful Odin and his brothers from the body of a giant. The start of a mythical and breathtaking adventure.

Odin created Asgard, the kingdom of the gods, but that doesn't mean he's resting on his laurels. The father of all things watches over the nine realms, placed in a delicate balance atop the world tree Yggdrasil. These realms are full of mythical creatures, some peaceful, others less so. So, the gods of Asgard must soon face their first conflict.

Nestled in their kingdom of Asgard, the Norse gods watch over Midgard, the realm of men. There are numerous threats coming from the nine realms, starting with the giants whose taunts and provocations become more and more frequent. Fortunately, men and gods can count on Odin and his powerful son Thor to repel the attacks. And when the god of thunder brandishes his hammer Mjölnir, it’s usually the start of a great adventure.

In Norse mythology, Loki has a place of his own. Taken into Asgard as an infant, he grew under the protection of Odin. Rival and friend of Thor, he prefers illusions to sheer force. His magical talents are very useful in Asgard. Little by little, however, Loki turns evil and his tricks do not amuse anyone anymore. In the end, the god of discord will turn against the other gods fighting Ragnarök.

After spending a lifetime battling giants and feasting plentifully between adventures, the gods of Asgard must now face their doom. Ragnarök, Twilight of the Gods, is looming... Across the nine realms, natural catastrophes are striking everywhere and the final battle against the giants is drawing ever closer. The time has finally come for Odin, Thor, and the other Æsir to don their armour and face their destiny.

Behind the Legends

Title card

The legendary Battle of Thermopylae has been told over and over and remains famous for an incredible act of valor: 300 Spartan warriors defending a narrow path against tens of thousands of Persians to protect the retreat of the Greek army. A symbol of courage, sacrifice and honor. But there's more to the story as the Spartans weren't actually alone at this moment. And Leonidas' personality deserves some enlightenment.

Title card

Who doesn't know Cleopatra, legendary queen of Egypt? A woman as beautiful as a goddess who claimed power in a world of men, seducing Roman emperor Julius Caesar and general Mark Antony before her tragic death. But this is just a small part of Cleopatra's great accomplishments. The way she accessed the Egyptian throne and how she managed to stay on top during his reign reveal the personality of a true leader.

Title card

Who is Jack the Ripper? More than 130 years after the horrendous crimes that terrified the Whitechapel borough in London, the identity of the most famous English serial killer is still unknown. The number of murders and the killer’s motive also continue to inspire many theories. Nowadays, Jack the Ripper remains a myth as pop culture has taken its toll on him. Time to put the light on the facts.

Title card

Writer and philosopher, the Marquis de Sade is a very controversial figure because of its texts, where erotism and pornography had an important place, along with cruelty, rape and murders. To such an extent that his name gave the root of the word "sadistic". Because of his work and his deviant behavior, he spent more than a third of his life in prison. But how did the heir of an ancient French noble family become this despicable yet legendary character?

Title card

As the only person to have signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Treaty of Alliance with France in 1778, Treaty of Paris in 1783, and U.S. Constitution in 1787, Benjamin Franklin remains in history as perhaps the most important Founding Fathers of the United States. And this even though he never ruled, earning him the title of "the only president of the United States who was never president of the United States". But behind the politician lies a great man of science responsible for a variety of inventions, starting with the lighting rod.

Title card

Think of pirates and there's a great chance that the first image that comes to your mind is a Blackbeard look alike: a cruel captain with a long beard and a hat, thirsty for blood, yelling at his men from the upper deck of his ship as he prepares to board an unfortunate merchant's boat. Well, this has been the image of Blackbeard, alias Edward Teach, over the centuries. But the real Teach was not especially cruel and tyrannical, at least no more than any other pirate back in the days.

Title card

His name has inspired poems, novels, songs… Paul Revere remains forever attached to his greatest accomplishment : his "Midnight Ride" on April 18th-19th 1775. A long night of horse riding from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the British Army movements. A night that would change the course of the war and of the soon-to-be United States of America. But what history has forgotten is that Paul Revere was more than just a rider. He was a very active member of the Sons of Liberty and worked in the shadows to help the Revolution.
