Somewhere in the middle, [[EnglishCivilWar Britain had a civil war]]. Dashing Cavaliers fought dour Puritans the length and breadth of both islands, and the son of the King hid in an oak tree. The Puritans won, and abolished Christmas, then the country abolished them. The surviving puritans left England and founded the United States, Charles II climbed back out of the oak tree, London burnt to the ground, women were allowed to be actors on stage and Newton invented gravity. Somebody named [[Literature/TheDiaryOfSamuelPepys Pepys kept a diary]].

Back on mainland Europe the UsefulNotes/ThirtyYearsWar was fought; France, Sweden, and Austria fighting over the HolyRomanEmpire, hastening its long, painful decline. East of Germany, rowdy Polish nobility alternates between fighting in perpetual wars against Sweden, Muscovy and Turkey, and generally making a mess around themselves.

The favorite era for the {{Swashbuckler}}, this is the age in Europe when lusty musketeers dueled with each other and got sucked into intrigues involving dauphins, {{Corrupt Church}}men and [[TheVamp vampish]] courtesans. [[NiceHat Hats]] with [[FluffyFashionFeathers large feathers]] and boots were in fashion for men. Also the {{Golden Age of Piracy}} [[{{Pirate}} on the High Seas]], when [[DressedToPlunder eyepatched and peg-legged]] buccaneers buried stolen gold, brandished cutlasses, tied up buxom, bodice-wearing maidens and then forced them to watch as their hapless boyfriends walked the plank.
