* ForeShadowing: In a meta way. In ''Anacaona: Golden Flower'', Anacaona receives a message that "invaders with fair skin" have arrived. When Anacaona finally meets them, she notices that while they do have light skin (lighter than those of Anacaona and her fellow Tainos), they were not as fair-skinned as the message claimed they were. The invaders were from Spain. Eventually, colonists from Northern Europe- with ever fairer coloring than those from Spain- would arrive to the Americas!!!

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade - [[TheHouseOfTudor Mary I]] in ''Red Rose of the House of Tudor'', who is portrayed as devious, cunning, and hateful towards her younger siblings. While her relationships with Elizabeth and Edward certainly cooled later in life, during their childhoods, the much-older Mary acted as a mother figure, and was on record as being hopelessly naive and guileless. The enmity between her and Elizabeth didn't really kick into gear until after Mary became queen; it's not until she starts burning Protestants that she really deserves this.
