The Medieval Period (500-1500)

The Medieval Period, also known as The Middle Ages, covers several periods and eras from around the world. The Middle Ages began around 500 A.D. with the fall of the Roman Empire and ended with the start of The Renaissance. Several events marked this change such as the invention of the printing press, the end of The Hundred Years War, Christopher Columbus’ discovery of America in 1492, and more.

Aside from the more familiar European timelines from Medieval Times, our period drama reviews also include historical dramas set in Asian countries. Some Dynasties of China include the Tang dynasty (618-906) and the beginning of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). As for the Korean dynasties, you may come across the Goryeo Period (918-1392) as well as the start of the very long Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). But this is just scratching the surface.

It should be noted that this era is very far from complete. Stay tuned as we plan on filling up this page with more reviews of period dramas from Medieval time. We would also love to hear from you. Share with us some recommendations and we will cover them if at all possible.

Note: As always, the content on our site has a more old-fashioned theme and focuses more on PG-13 content or below. Anything Rated R or rated TV-MA will get a content warning in the review.

Be sure to check out the other historical eras from our main page of the Period Drama Review Archives. From Ancient, Regency, WWI, to Victorian, there are several period dramas just waiting for you to check out!
