Drottningarna (The Queens)
Sweden's queens have been hidden behind their kings for centuries. Now TV4 and C More are bringing them to light. Sofia Helin hosts for the first time a magnificent series about the lives and destinies of eight Swedish queens. Through magnificent reconstructions, the episodes are filled with power intrigues and forbidden love, passion and pledged crown jewels as well as betrayal, jealousy and coups. The Queens premieres on TV4 and C More in the autumn of 2020.

On September 17, the premiere of the historical documentary series The Queens on TV4, TV4 Play and C More. In The Queens, we get to follow our most fascinating queens through their eventful lives. The program is led by the acclaimed actress Sofia Helin.
- History is fascinating. Through it we better understand ourselves and the time we live in. It is always the authorities who set the tone and this is where the most decisive and dramatic events take place. The queens have been in the middle of the action and yet so much of their dramatic life is unknown. Now it's time for us to get to know them better !, says Sofia Helin.
This unique documentary series sheds light on eight of Sweden's queens. Each episode is dedicated to one of our queens and her fascinating life story, from childhood to the last breath - always one step behind her king, but with great power to influence both politically and culturally. The series is based on real events from Swedish history from the 16th century until the 1930s that have never been told in a format like this before.
The reconstructions take place at castles and manors around Sweden, including The Royal Palace, Rosersberg Palace and Gripsholm Castle. Many times in the same place as the real event took place. In addition, environments have been created that will take place in Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Egypt, and the Netherlands.
- Drottningarna is one of our biggest program investments during the autumn and it feels right and nice to be able to highlight a part of Swedish history that previously often ended up in the shadow of our kings. Now it is the queens' lives and significance for our common history that is in focus. We will invite viewers on a historical journey with exciting facts and fantastic stories about these women, about love, power and intrigue, says Åsa Sjöberg, content manager at TV4 and C More.
The queens are depicted by actors who, with magnificent dresses and historical props, from jewels to utensils, create magic together with hundreds of lookalikes by historical figures. Host Sofia Helin leads us through history together with a dozen experienced experts and historians. By looking at history from the Queens' perspective, the program's experts have sometimes reasoned their way to new theories and interpretations of historical events.
The Queens:
Karin Månsdotter (1550-1612)
Kristina (1626-1689)
Hedvig Eleonora av Holstein-Gottorp (1636-1715)
Lovisa Ulrika of Prussia (1720-1782)
Fredrika Dorotea Wilhelmina (1781-1826)
Desideria (1777 - 1860)
Lovisa of the Netherlands (1828-1871)
Victoria av Baden (1862-1930)
Drottningarna -

The Queens - a new historical documentary series where you get to follow Sweden's most fascinating queens. Among period costumes and fantastic environments, the actress Sofia Helin leads us through history and meets powerful women who have been involved in shaping our time.
