This got me into history
I was 4 when this series came out. Probably 5 or 6 when it reached the UK, so my memory of it is vague to say the least. Thibaud had black hair and wore white. His friend was blonde and wore black. As a child, the political accuracy went straight over my head. I just loved the battles and played out the episodes at school. Yet, for all that simplicity, the series's impact on me was enormous. I was hooked and with it has come a life-long love of medieval history. I'm now a swordsman myself and an Anglo-Saxon/Norman re-enactor. I'm also doing a university degree in history. I'd love to see an episode again just to (undoubtedly) see how bad it really was and just how much the passing of time has glorified the memory...a bit like history really.
