The Man with Six Heads

Planning for a two-part, two-hour documentary film chronicling the life and career of Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, 1754-1838.

THE MAN WITH SIX HEADS is a two-part television series that tells the dramatic and compelling story of the extraordinary French diplomat Charles Maurice Talleyrand whose career spanned from the last years of the old regime to the emergence of the modern age in France. Talleyrand served six different governments- Louis XVI, the Revolutionary Convention and Directory, Napoleon, Louis XVIII, Charles X, and Louis-Philippe. By examining Talleyrand's life, the programs will illuminate some of the most momentous events of European history: last days of the old "regime," the turbulence of the French Revolution, the impact of the Napoleonic era, the Congress of Vienna and the Great Peace of Europe, and the last age of kings.
