* ViewersAreGeniuses: Since they are told by a "contemporary" narrator, the original books are in Old Spanish, often with words that are rare or no longer used today, and 17th-century slang popping out constantly in the dialogue. Not to mention the parts written in other languages without translation provided, such as Portuguese or even Germanía - an argot of the criminal underworld that ''has been dead for centuries''. As expected, the series is a pain in the ass for professional translators.

''The Adventures of Captain Alatriste'' is a series of HistoricalFiction novels written by Arturo Pérez-Reverte starring a Spanish soldier-turned-mercenary-turned-sword-for-hire, the titular Diego Alatriste y Tenorio (who was never an actual Captain in the Army, [[NonIndicativeName but was called that way]]). Alatriste is a veteran of the [[EightyYearsWar Flanders War]] who lives badly in 17th-century Europe, looking for shady jobs and sometimes being lead to international conspiracies involving the Spanish Crown and the Inquisition. At the same time, Alatriste trains a squire, Íñigo de Balboa, the orphan child of an old friend; Íñigo serves as the narrator of the story. The series includes adventures and noir in a well-researched historical setting.

* {{Homage}}: The whole series can be read as Pérez Reverte's homage to the genre of historical adventure, especially AlexandreDumas and [[Literature/AubreyMaturin PatrickO'Brien]], but with a DarkerAndEdgier twist. It also reads as a PerspectiveFlip, since much of that literature has traditionally been written by British or French authors and tends to portray Spaniards as the bad guys.
