About the Show
Throughout history, our world has been shaped by the rich and powerful. You recognize their names, you know their deeds. But to really understand the insanely rich rulers, tycoons, and visionaries who dominated the past–we need to follow the money. Who had the most? And how did they spend it? In History’s Crazy Rich Ancients, each episode introduces mysterious icons from the past who shared one obsession–from exotic animals to billion-dollar parties to nine-figure palaces. Episodes take viewers on an immersive ride through this jaw-dropping decadence– to discover who these icons were, and ultimately, who among them spent the most.
