Rasputin-The Mad Monk

Episode 10

Episode 10 is dedicated to one of history’s most enigmatic characters: Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin. A man thoroughly integrated with myth, viewed as a monk, a healer, a mad man, a holy man, a con man or perhaps a strange combination of all these things.

Set against the backdrop of the Russian Revolution, the tale weaves mysticism, seduction, betrayal, and murder together forming a narrative that has fascinated historians and story tellers alike for over a century.
