Historical Fiction

Historical Fiction as a genre exists where a story is set in the past, and while the lives of the characters may intersect with those of major historical figures, and behind the scenes shenanigans may add fictional details to the historical record, the overall history as we know it is not changed. For example, the heroes of a story may meet Napoleon, they might in some way affect the Battle of Austerlitz, but that battle still occurs as it did historically, it is just that in this work of fiction some of the explanations as to why may have been changed.
