George Sphrantzes was the Emperor Constantine XI's personal secretary and friend. According to his own account of the conquest of Constantinople, his daughter Thamar (named Therma in the series) was 12 years old when the city fell and was taken into captivity by the Turks, dying in the Sultan's harem in September 1455 of an infectious disease. Therefore, the series inaccurately portrays her as having escaped to the island of Chios. There is also no evidence that Thamar and Giovanni Giustiniani Longo, the leader of the Genoese mercenaries, were in a romantic relationship. See more »
This is a pretty well done series, based on the history. Both sides are portrayed equally (amusingly some reviewers are offended by that). I like the detail that has gone into it, and the motivations of the historical figures. I wish there was more of a summary of the centuries leading up to the attack, like the countless islamic crusades and attacks into Europe, but all in all its a good show.
