10 most Histrorically inaccurate films

Just read an article from Watchmojo.com about the 10 worst historically inaccurate movies of all time.  Not surprisingly, Braveheart came 3rd!  The site criticises the dating of the movie and the costumes.  However, they make a huge mistake of their own.  Correctly pointing out that William Wallace could never have fathered 9 year old Isabella's child, they credit Edward III being the father of, erm, himself?:)  In case you're wondering, 'The Alamo' came top.

Yes, I've noticed Edward III instead of Edward II as well :-) As far as I am concerned, there is one film missing on that list, namely Kingdom of Heaven. Spectacular as it may be it also alters history to the point when it becomes insufferable for those who happen to know sth about the real Balian d'Ibelin :-)And other characters/figures.

Hi Kasia - with so many awful historically inaccurate films around, they must have had a hard choice whittling it down to 10!

I'm glad Braveheart came out so high, but also rather disappointed that Kingdom of Heaven didn't make it!

Hi Kathryn - I wish it had come top:). actually the Other Boleyn Girl should have come first!

Can we get a simple list instead of watching through that collage of scenes most of which I didn't recognise (only Braveheart and Alexander)? Is that horrible King Arthur and the Sarmatians one on the list? That would be my no. 2, after Braveheart.

Sorry Gabriele - there's no printed list.

Well, at least the fact that I recognised only 2 out of 10 means that I missed 8 historically inaccurate films. Not that I don't have seen my share of it anyway. ;-)
