This mostly covers medieval Europe, one of the most popular and fun historical periods. Why do people love medieval history so much? Probably because the period from the fall of Rome to the Renaissance (Dark Ages, Middle Ages, High Middle Ages) was often exciting, hilarious, and the sheer complexity of the political, economic, and religious world of that time means there are many exciting stories to learn about and some yet to be discovered.
It was also often seen as a relatively lawless time, like the Wild West in American history. There was not always one overarching government to control all areas of the continent at any given time, and no police force could be present everywhere, at all times.
For these reasons and many others, the middle ages remain a captivating period of history for many people. Modern popular culture has embraced this period with books, movies, and TV series using middle ages Europe, whether the reality, or an imaginary, fictional version, as its setting.
