Recommendations for Historical Fiction

I like books that help me understand the consciousness of people from other times.

I like:

The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
I Claudius by Robert Graves
The Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O’Brien
The Wolf Hall Series by Hillary Mantel.

What else would I like?

    Oy! Hey there Eric, two or three i can think up (though they lean more on fiction):
    “thousand autumns of jacob de zoet” by David Mitchell
    “Lonesome Dove” by Larry McMurtry (really defied my expectations; excellent book)
    “Art of the Deal” by Donald Trump (classic).
