    Something's missing

    It's everything that's promised. But Acorn Media left out Episode 6, The House of Windsor, which aired December 2007 (so we have a cliff-hanger with Queen Victoria at mid-reign) and I can't find it anywhere as a separate offering. Otherwise, Monarchy 1 and 2 are essential viewing if you are to understand the foundations of the governments of America and other Western democracies. With the last episode included I'd make it 5 stars.
