*** The Kingdom of Gallia is [[LEtatCestMoi the Kingdom of France]], with some flavors of Spain in it (like the castle of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alhambra Alhambra]] where Tabitha was imprisonned). The capital city is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lutetia Lutèce]](Paris), but the royale palace is in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace_of_Versailles Versailles]], just like it was in RealLife under the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancien_R%C3%A9gime Ancient Régime]].

*** Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector of Holy Republic of Albion, is, well, OliverCromwell, the Lord Protector of Commonwealth Republic. The civil war he leads is against James I of Albion, counterpart of [[JamesTheFirst James I of England]] (father of CharlesI against whom real Cromwell led a similar [[EnglishCivilWar rebellion]]). On the other hand, Prince Wales Tudor of Albion is a generic Prince of Wales.
*** Giulio named himself after the Fantasy Counterpart of [[GaiusJuliusCaesar Caesar]], who apparently lived centuries ago in the history of the setting. So he's not actually a fantasy counterpart of a historical figure, just a fanboy of the fantasy counterpart of a historical figure.

* RagsToRoyalty: [[spoiler:Depending on how you look at it, Tabitha might qualify as either a Snow White or Goose Girl style version as she's actually Charlotte Helene Orléans, the rightful heir to the Gallian throne but was denied her position after her father got murdered during a duel with his own brother and her mother became mad after drinking a potent poison actually meant for Tabitha. She was then sent to Tristain to keep her out of the way and adopted the alias Tabitha, the name of a doll given to her by her mother. The conspirators then arranged for her to become a knight so they could use her magical talent as an excuse to send her on dangerous missions]].

* ThanksForTheMammaries: Saito's done this a couple of times, although usually while he's asleep or very shortly after waking up. He's also tried doing it to Louise, who's often [[ACupAngst not happy]] with it. With the introcution of Tiffania, it becomes a recurring gag. One example of this is when she asks Saito to check if her chest is real by touching them.

* BolivianArmyEnding: Both Volume 2 and 7 end with a variation of this, though the ones at the receiving end are not the main characters. In Volume 2, the Albionian Royalists’ glorious last stand [[spoiler: got most of the wind knocked out of it after Prince Wales’ assassination, so they ended up getting ignobly massacred]]. Volume 7 closes with Cromwell, [[BaitAndSwitchBoss up to then the main antagonist]], cheerfully greeting the “reinforcements” from the Gallian airship armada… [[spoiler: only to be bombarded and killed along the rest of the Reconquista army.]]

* IHaveToGoIronMyDog: When Montmorency wears the sailor uniform to class, Saito evades Louise's questioning by claiming that he has to feed the pigeons.



** Played straight in Volume 9, when Henrietta calls Saito from amongst the Ondine Knights.



* {{Joshikousei}}: In one of the light novels, Saito has a seifuku made and persuades Siesta to wear it. Guiche and Malicorn loudly express outrage at how "indecent" it looks (compared to the Academy uniforms?), but they're clearly fascinated - and then Guiche asks where '''he''' can get one, implying he's going to try and talk Montmorency into wearing it ... in private.
