Dorothy Dunnett. Series starting with The Game of Kings. All about a Scottish Tudor (super) hero called Francis Crawford of Lymond. Wonderfully swashbuckling, grandiose in scale, and sometimes in language, but deeply fab if you like that sort of thing. There is another series called the Niccolo series set earlier. I really enjoyed that as well.
