Abstract: The properties of radio loud active galaxies (radiogalaxies, BL Lac objects and radio loud quasar) at low and high redshift are briefly reviewed and compared. The recently derived empirical relations between central black hole mass and host properties allow one to explore the demographics of massive black hole in active galaxies. It is shown that all classes of active galaxies considered exhibit very similar host properties and, consequently, have central black holes of comparable mass. The future observing capabilities would allow the investigation of the evolution of the host galaxy properties up to z ∼ 3, and will give insight into the joint formation of black holes and massive spheroids.
