In the 19th century, the major European powers had gone to great lengths to maintain a balance of power throughout Europe, resulting by 1900 in a complex network of political and military alliances throughout the continent. Beginning in 1815, the Holy Alliance between Prussia, Russia, and Austria formalized what had been a strictly familial support network. The House of Habsburg, the House of Hohenzollern, and the House of Romanov had long intermarried, resulting in an incredibly tangled web of relationships, a number of which led back to Queen Victoria of England. These three families influenced the political landscape of Europe, and their personal struggles, tragedies and decisions within these relationships affected Europe to a greater degree than they ever imagined. This miniseries focuses on the leading personalities of these three privileged families, and how they influenced the events that led to WWI
