Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has R. van Rijn, aka Creator/RembrandtVanRijn, more commonly known in real life as Rembrandt - in our world, a famous Dutch painter; in the GaslampFantasy world of ''Girl Genius'', a [[MadScientist Spark]] and the creator of the famous Muses of the Storm King, mechanical works that have still not been paralleled 200 years later.
** The Storm King himself is the equivalent of UsefulNotes/LouisXIV, the Sun King. However, the Storm King is Andronicus Valois, whereas Louis was of the House of Bourbon, suggesting that in ''Girl Genius'' the House of Valois never died out.
