When you make a movie for the big screen, you’re allowed to completely rewrite history, apparently.
A lot of people like Braveheart, for instance. I wonder though if we could have liked it just as well without the kilts, and William Wallace not having an affair with Isabella of France, because he didn’t and she was only three years old at the time.
The mistakes they make in movies you’d never get away with in a novel, (mumbles something about tomatoes.)
HERE ARE TEN OF THE BIGGEST HISTORICAL MOVIE MISTAKES EVER
When you watch a movie, how important is historical accuracy to you? And do you have different standards for a novel??
Here’s the story of the man Isabella really did have an affair with …
She was taught to obey. Now she has learned to rebel.
12 year old Isabella, a French princess marries the King of England – only to discover he has a terrible secret.
Ten long years later she is in utter despair – does she submit to a lifetime of solitude and a spiritual death – or seize her destiny and take the throne of England for herself?
This is the story of Isabella, the only woman ever to invade England – and win.
“This is phenomenal historical fiction that is highly recommended. Once you read Colin Falconer, you’ll want to read everything he has ever written as well as what he will craft in the future!” – Crystal Book Reviews
