My sis is finding it pretty inspiring and doing her assignments with gusto. "Did you know Charlemagne didn't let his adored daughters get married, but he let them have affairs, then when he died, their brother became king and sent them all to a convent? Freaky!" she rambles. When studying Henri II, she looked up portraits of Diane de Poitiers, photos of the chateaux Chenonceau and Chaumont, read about the Protestant Hugenots and then got all excited reading that the replica of the urn of Henri II's heart was in the Louvre.
Do you find history inspiring your writing? Researching the era, the area or a person who your characters might have met? Dig in - it's pretty inspiring stuff!
