Learn about The Plantagenets with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.The House of Plantagenet was a royal house of 15 monarchs who ruled England from 1154-1485. The Plantagenets originally came from France, where they ruled a county called Anjou. They were a strange and powerful family, complex and prone to insanity. Their founder, Count Fulk III (known as ´´The Black”), had his wife burned at the stake in her wedding dress when he discovered she was sleeping with a goatherd. His great grandson, Geoffrey V gave the dynasty its name. The word Plantagenet comes from the name of a flower: plante genêt in French, or ´´common broom”. Geoffrey V was said to have worn a sprig of the golden flower in his battle helmet. Geoffrey married the Empress Matilda, daughter of Henry I of England, and their son, Henry II, became king on 19 December 1154, after a brief civil war known as ´´The Anarchy”.

His name was Antonio, but they would call him Nem. From the infamous favela of Rocinha in Rio, he was a hardworking young father forced to make a decision that would turn his world upside down. Nemesis is the story of an ordinary man who became the king of the largest slum in Rio, the head of a drug cartel and perhaps Brazil’s most wanted criminal. A man who tried to bring welfare and justice to a playground of gang culture and destitution while everyone around him drew guns and partied. It’s a captivating tale of gold hunters and evangelical pastors, bent police and rich-kid addicts, quixotic politicians and drug lords with maths degrees. Spanning rainforests and high-security prisons, filthy slums and glittering shopping malls, this is also the story of how change came to Brazil. Of a country’s journey into the global spotlight and the battle for the beautiful but damned city of Rio as it struggles to break free from a tangled web of corruption, violence, drugs and poverty. With Nem at its centre, locked in a fight for his country’s future. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Misha Glenny. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rhuk/002172/bk_rhuk_002172_sample.mp3.

Learn about the idea that everyone has 15 Minutes of Fame with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Commenting on the increasingly fleeting nature of celebrity, in 1968 artist Andy Warhol quipped: ´´In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”. In a twenty first-century world of reality TV and YouTube, it appears Warhol’s prediction has come true. The changing nature of celebrity over time is an interesting backdrop to today’s short-lived fame. In the Middle Ages, only the monarchy and high aristocracy could claim to have anything like what we would call fame today. But with the absence of mass communication, most people did not even know what the king looked like. The imprint of his head on coins did not need to bear any likeness to reality because representation of power was seen as more important than any recognition in appearance.
