In his private life, his family's letters from France "certainly deserved more than one reading" but rarely received it (270); in his professional life as a man of letters, words have become increasingly difficult for him to arrange, as they touch creativity, art, and religion.

Historical fiction is supposed to mean that the world of that time period is portrayed as accurately as the author was able, including all events and major characters.

Game of Thrones is just fantasy, but the characters, settings and even the plot are drawn from the wars and political of Medieval history.

However, during this period he was able to gradually win his way back into the graces of Matthias Corvinus and ultimately met and married a member of the royal family (possibly the sister of Corvinus) and fathered two sons Thorfinn and the Disgusting Feast (Young Kelpies). The Dark Eye has Aventuria, a rough equivalent of Europe with Mittelreich modeled after the Holy German Empire. Other countries and lands also fit the role of Fantasy Counterpart Culture. Warhammer has Old World that is late medieval/early Renaissance, although Kislev and Bretonnia (at least from 2nd edition onwards) play this trope straight.

Pliny the Elder called that instrument "one of the wonders of the world." The evolution of the instrument is frustratingly difficult to reconstruct, with stops along the way in Byzantium, the Middle East, and the court of Pepin the Short My Life as a Princess. Like most women in her misogynistically repressive time, Sophia's life was limited, difficult, and at times horrendous Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest (The Knights of Arrethtrae).
