Well, those are historical fictions. (Some much more fiction than others) As long as you remember they are hollywood movies and not all that historically accurate, I'd suggest these similar movies.  They should be easy to find…

  • Robin Hood (The new one with Russell Crowe, not the Kevin Costner one...)
  • Braveheart
  • Pillars of the Earth (actually a 6-or-so part miniseries, but movie quality)
  • The Tudors (tv series)
  • Elizabeth
  • Elizabeth: The Golden Age
  • The Young Victoria
  • The King's Speech
  • The Queen

These might be somewhat harder to find, unless you have Netflix or Lovefilm or want to get them online:

  • Ivanhoe (another miniseries)
  • The Madness of King George
  • The Lost Prince

No, these are not entirely historically accurate, but they are good films on their own and I think they serve to promote greater interest in the subject.  Other suggestions?  Outside historical films, is there a type of film you like?  Comedy?  Drama?  Action?  Just anything with British accents?
