Ok, so I have been reading a set of articles(Link) talking about the discrepancies between what is described in the conan books and how  the artwork often displays something entirely different. The main focus was on how Aquilonians are nowadays usually portrayed as fantasy Romans while in the books they are described as a more midieval society. Now as REH based most of his world on historical precedents I never had any problems with this myself but it did get me wondering.

In the following link you’ll find a list of the different Hyborian nations and the historical time period they are loosely based on.

Now my question to you:

What do you guy’s think of these and are there any you imagined differently and why.

No real reason just wondering.

Cheers,

Stroezie.
