Pharaoh Superstar
This week an exceptional exhibition opens at the Louvre Museum on the kings of Napata who became "Pharaohs of the Two Lands". This is the occasion to talk about the prestigious figure of the pharaoh in art history! What is a pharaoh? Why are they considered as gods? Were there women pharaohs? All the answers, and more, in our playlist of the week!

She was the most notorious woman in ancient history, a queen who enraptured not one but two of Rome’s greatest generals. But was she just a skilled seductress – or a great ruler in her own right? Alex Gendler puts this controversial figure on trial in History vs. Cleopatra.
