Guess who loves history as much as certified historians? The writers of historical fiction! They put a lot of research and effort into making sure that they get the details in and around their stories accurately, even if the tales themselves are more or less fictive. Several authors of historical fiction have blogs devoted to the times and people they are researching for their writing projects. Here are a few of the ones who tend to include royal topics plus some writers of nonfiction who also share their research online.
