Historical Figures Who Show Up In The Fate Series

The entire Fate franchise is filled with unique characters inspired by historical, mythical, and real-world figures who are just as intriguing and awesome as the reimagined ones! Each Servant from Fate draws its persona from pre-existing staples in political hierarchies of the past. From deities to legends, the cast of characters come from a wide variety of religions and cultures. 

Historical figures in the Fate series are cleverly crafted to reflect true and unique aspects of their actual counterparts. At the same time, the animated characters are reconstructed with an entirely new look - sometimes even a different gender. Compiled here is a complete list of the characters linked to actual historical figures in Ufotable's Fate Stay/Night and Fate/Zero series. Check out which legendary icon your favorite Servant is inspired by below.
