Dive into the life of Henry Christophe, a former slave and leader in the Haitian Revolution and the only king of Haiti.

The royal couple of Haiti rode into their coronation to thunderous applause. After receiving his ornate crown, Henry Christophe ascended his throne, towering 20 meters in the air. But little did the cheering onlookers know that the first king of Haiti would also be its last. Who was this revolutionary? Marlene Daut details how a man enslaved at birth rose through the ranks to become king.

Lesson by Marlene Daut, directed by Cabong Studios.
