Overview

Many great men (and a few women) have been sustained by the support of a low profile, self-effacing partner. Power Couples investigates the rare and intriguing cases where both partners hit the headlines. Our cast spans four continents and two millennia ¿ though the power couple only really became a commoner phenomenon in the twentieth century - and includes:

  • Antony and Cleopatra
  • The Macbeths
  • Ferdinand and Isabella
  • Elizabeth and Essex
  • Victoria and Albert
  • FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt
  • The Kennedys
  • The Clintons
  • Charles and Diana

What would these men and women have achieved without their other halves? What powered the relationships that made them household names? Love? Sex? Obsessive passion? Shared ambition? A sense of duty? A hard-nosed calculation of the benefits of collaboration? You will find them all in Power Couples.
