A story of espionage, revenge, power and loyalty that follows King Charles II's hunt for his father's killers in ROYAL KILL LIST

Royal Kill List is a Sky HISTORY Original series which tells an epic story of bloody revenge during a pivotal period of English history. This is a story about espionage, revenge, power, loyalty, and the moment that changed the landscape of British politics and society forever. 

This three-part drama-documentary follows King Charles II’s hunt for his father’s killers – the Regicides, as they were known - as a window into a remarkable and often overlooked historical period to explore how we became the nation we are today.

Filmed in Hungary and the UK and told through dramatic reconstruction, with three of Britain’s leading actors serving as primary storytellers – Sheila Atim for the Royalists, Jared Harris for the Regicides, and Joseph Fiennes for King Charles II – this epic series plays out as a Jacobean tragedy detailing the king’s lifelong obsession to hunt down and kill those responsible for his father’s death and his own exile.

Sky HISTORY boasts the very best in class factual entertainment and innovative talent-led original programming. We create and share stories that matter so that our viewers can enjoy and understand the changing world we live in.
