Brandamente reminds me a bit of Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones. Fearless, with high morals, and superior fighting skills, Brandamante is a fine heroine. Still, she doesn't have everything she needs because her heart is after Ruggiero.
You don't have to know the historical background of the story to understand and enjoy it, but if you do like history then the way the author included bits of history will please you. Still, it is NOT history "heavy".
When I was a child I loved fairy tales, and if you do too, I recommend this read.
