Question: Who was the real Black Adder?

Robert John Blackadder, of the North Scottish Royal Garrison Artillery, fought at the Somme, where he won the Military Cross. Whats more, a real Private Baldrick was found – James was killed, aged 23, at the battle of Messines in 1914 – as well as a Lieutenant George.

Is Blackadder true story?

The four series of Blackadder are replete with history. History was my big subject at school, says producer John Lloyd. Thus The Black Adder was set in 1485. In this world, Richard III is succeeded by (the fictional) Richard IV, who is later written out of history by (the real) Henry VII.
