Loosely based on the life of Charles-Geneviève-Louis-Auguste-André-Timothée d'Éon de Beaumont. The things the Anime picks up, are the facts that he was a spy and that he lived some time as a woman. Also the places, where the anime takes place are based on the real whereabouts of Eon.



The Rose of Versailles (1979)

The movie bases partly on the life of Jiro Horikoshi,  but parts of the movie are also fictionalized.
