Title: A Song of Fire and Ice and fealty
Post by: winkingbishop on May 07, 2010, 06:07:15 PM
I'm reading the series, about 1/3 through book 3.  I enjoy it.  Among other things, it has changed the way I look at feudalism and fealty in medieval Europe.  But I am not a medieval historian, just a hobbyist.  How true do you feel it is to the historical system of feudalism and court?  What era does it map to in the real world?  Would you suggest a more accurate representation of feudalism (fiction or nonfiction)?
