Behind the Legends - EP4: Marquis de Sade
Writer and philosopher, the Marquis de Sade is a very controversial figure because of its texts, where erotism and pornography had an important place, along with cruelty, rape and murders. To such an extent that his name gave the root of the word "sadistic". Because of his work and his deviant behavior, he spent more than a third of his life in prison. But how did the heir of an ancient French noble family become this despicable yet legendary character ?

Behind the Legends - EP5: Benjamin Franklin
As the only person to have signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Treaty of Alliance with France in 1778, Treaty of Paris in 1783, and U.S. Constitution in 1787, Benjamin Franklin remains in history as perhaps the most important Founding Fathers of the United States. And this even though he never ruled, earning him the title of "the only president of the United States who was never president of the United States". But behind the politician lies a great man of science responsible for a variety of inventions, starting with the lighting rod.

Behind the Legends - EP7: Paul Revere
His name has inspired poems, novels, songs… Paul Revere remains forever attached to his greatest accomplishment : his "Midnight Ride" on April 18th-19th 1775. A long night of horse riding from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the British Army movements. A night that would change the course of the war and of the soon-to-be United States of America. But what history has forgotten is that Paul Revere was more than just a rider. He was a very active member of the Sons of Liberty and worked in the shadows to help the Revolution.

Behind the Legends - EP8: Niccolo and Maffeo Polo
Polo is a name engraved in the legend of exploration. Sure, Marco did a lot for that by describing thoroughly his trip to China and his life alongside the Mongol emperor Kublai Khan. But Marco Polo owes a great deal to his father Niccolò and his uncle Maffeo. These two merchants started by establishing trading points on the road to western Europe and Asia before making the full trip to China… twice ! The second time, they brought young Marco, who was then 17, with them, marking the beginning of his legend. But there’s no reason why the two brothers should remain in the shadow of their descendant.
