Trivia

Although most of the important characters are real, a few key people are totally fictitious: Bash, Gideon Blackburn, the peasant Lucile, Narcisse, along with a dozen minor characters. Mary's four ladies of honor are based on the "four Maries", but have their own subplots and distinctive names. Of the real characters, perhaps the one that has had her personality and life story changed the most is Claude the Valois, who in real life married at the age of 11, had 9 children, died during childbirth at 27 and was not known for her intense romantic life and outward personality.

Came for the History, Stayed for the Romance
25 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Some parts of this are way too painful to watch. I began watching it because I love Mary, Queen of Scots, but soon found that the historical accuracy of this was blown way out of proportion. Clothing (especially the dresses) - WRONG. Food - WRONG. Dance style - WRONG. Names of Mary's friends - WRONG. It seemed like I had a permanent grimace on my face for the beginning of it.

But then there's my affection for the characters. I love Francis and Mary's relationship (and Toby is such an adorable actor :), I love Bash, I love Catherine (though seeing Anne Shirley on screen put me into shock for a while...had to pause it for a moment...), and I love that strangely mysterious person that keeps giving people hints. I FEEL SO HORRIBLE FOR LETTING SUCH A HISTORICALLY INEPT SHOW SUCK ME IN, BUT I LOVE IT AT THE SAME TIME!

tl;dr: Let's just say it's a fantasy show that just so happens to have the same names as historical figures.
