Monday, Feb 11, 2019 - 6:00 PM    "Inside The Louvre" We chase the brazen thief who stole the Mona Lisa to find out how she was recovered and how she became so famous, then scrutinize the official portrait of Napoleon's coronation to reveal a canvas of lies.

And finally, we probe a king's assassination to discover if the assailant was a lone knife-man or in league with an evil Queen. D
