A Song of Ice & Fire + The Wars of the Roses parallels (Part 1/?):

Martin has admitted he was inspired by the Wars of the Roses from 1455 to 1485, although fans have gone even further to draw direct parallels between characters and events in his books and real historical people and events. But Martin has insisted “there’s really no one-for-one character-for-character correspondence. I like to use history to flavor my fantasy, to add texture and verisimilitude, but simply rewriting history with the names changed has no appeal for me. I prefer to re-imagine it all, and take it in new and unexpected directions.” [x]

(much thanks to Tam for all her help with this!)
