* Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar frequently appears in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}''. Less frequent, but still recurring, are UsefulNotes/{{Cleopatra|VII}} and Brutus. UsefulNotes/{{Pompey|The Great}}'s the main villain of one story, and Vercingetorix is only shown a couple of times [[TheFaceless from behind]] but is extremely significant in the backstory. More obscure figures occasionally show up, like Cassivellaunus.

* The television adaptation of ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' doesn't have as many historical cameos as the books, but there are a few. Horatio's mentor, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Pellew,_1st_Viscount_Exmouth Captain Pellew]], could have an interesting series done about his own life. (He also considers Horatio to be LikeASonToMe, making it unclear if the fictionalized version is meant to have the real Pellew's large family.) Hornblower takes part in the failed Quiberon Expedition, and General Charette is used as a character. The third series also includes Betsy and Jerome Bonaparte, who end up separated after Hornblower rescues them from a storm and the diplomatic service orders him to put Jerome ashore alone (rather than both of them reaching France and Betsy being refused entry, as happened in RealLife).

Simply put, it's taking a well-known person from RealLife history and using this person as a character in a work. This does mean any work of that kind, whether it's HistoricalFiction, a HollywoodHistory story, or a [[ShownTheirWork well researched and accurate]] {{biopic}} of events. Needless to say, there isn't necessarily any similarity in personality between the real person and the character in the story. They may even be [[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy classical composers were secretly sleeper agents for extraterrestrials]]. Whatever works.

* While not the only anime set in the Bakumatsu period (and thus all characters are HistoricalDomainCharacter), ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' is one of the few that completely reinvent/exagerate character traits (e.g. Saigo Takamori is a transvestite, Hijikata Toshizo is crazed abotu Mayonnaise, and Kondō Isami is a stalking gorilla). Also mixed in people that are far more legendary, such as Kintaro and Hyubei, and you have a crack manga.
