Some of the best articles on this website came from readers’ ideas. We love receiving requests. This page shows the latest. Jump to requests.
The Fine Print
Please note that requests may take a surprisingly long time (think: months) to be written and not all requests are possible. How long it takes for us to write an article varies according to what we are currently researching and other articles planned. Currently Jamie is researching the Hundred Years’ War, so it takes longer for her to find new sources, switch gears, etc and start writing about the Crusades or Ancient Rome. But, with that said, an interesting idea is always tempting…
If you are making a request and know of some really interesting sources, please feel free to mention them or email them. (If you don’t know of any sources, that’s a-okay.)
Also, feel free to “vote up” a suggestion by noting in the comments section on this page that you’d like to see a particular article.
If you are interested in writing an article about the idea yourself, that’s always welcome and very cool. Please email.
You can make a request anywhere – here in the comments section, via email, or on Facebook. However, please note that Facebook requests sometimes get lost due to the news-feed type nature of Facebook (as well as my inability to use Facebook in a non-klutzy way). If you don’t hear back, please email us.
Requested and Suggested Articles
This list includes ideas even if they weren’t explicitly suggested as an article:
- Aerys the Mad King = Caligula the Mad Emperor
- Boltons are based off of the Vlad the Impaler/Dracula…with Roose representing history and Ramsay representing the dark legend
- Volantis and the Aristotle’s view of the perfect Polis
- Sansa as Elizabeth I [this awesome idea contains a bit of a TV spoiler so it may not happen for a while]
