I'm Elysium and I'm from Finland. I've been lurking here for some time and finally decided to join :)

I mostly read about Tudors and Wars of Roses but pretty much anything goes.

Welcome Elysium :-)

Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
