You are watching the show?
Watched the series, read the first book, and I'm about 200 pages into the 2nd book now. The comparisons to historical characters is high nerd-dom though.
there's not really all that much. the story is drawn from history but no character is a perfect representation of any one historical figure. it's pretty much like any fantasy novel, 1/3 history, 1/3 imagination, 1/3 tolkien.
i, personally love the history of england, so that's where i'm a total nerd.
