Who were the most notorious individuals ever to walk the earth? Channel 4 television presents The Masters of Darkness, the barely believable stories of four men whose sexual escapades, obsession with magic and radical ideas earned them the fear of their contemporaries and a place in modern culture.
The scandalous 'mad monk' of Tsarist Russia has a dark, sexual and bestial image. His nickname, Rasputin, means debauched one, and he'd already earned it, by his wild and licentious behaviour, when he was in his teens. But was he an enigmatic mystic, a political rogue or a skilled manipulator of innocent women? Contrary to popular belief, he was neither a monk nor a priest, but a wandering peasant who eventually exerted a powerful influence over Nicholas II, the last Tsar of imperial Russia. This association would cost him his life.
