Okay, the description doesn't say vampires, but it's the CW, so historic accuracy is the last thing I expect.
Right but there's a difference between playing fast and loose with the historical record (The Borgias) and being outright fantasy (Game of Thrones). I suspect since the series is billed as 'fantastical', it presumably sits somewhere between those two programs. This kind of 'historical figure in a scenario where there is probably some still unstated fantasy element' brings to mind the upcoming Da Vinci's Demons, really. I wonder if that's now going to be a thing.
