Rebecca Gablé

Rebecca Gablé (born 25 September 1964) is a German author of historical fiction. Gablé is best known for her medieval chivalry romances. She also works as a literary translator from English.

After, leaving school, in 1984 she embarked on a one-year apprenticeship as a trainee bank clerk. The one-year apprenticeship became four years as a bank worker. During that time she was living close to a military base used by the British Royal Air Force: she came into contact with the personnel there. This led to an intense interest in English language and culture, reflected regularly in her subsequent literary output. The commercial breakthrough came in 1997 with her first historical novel "Das Lächeln der Fortuna" (The Smile of Fortuna), of which in the first year after publication about 200,000 copies were sold. From 1999 to 2000, she was a lecturer at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf in Old English literature. In 2000 she published "Das zweite Königreich" (The Second Kingdom), another history novel. Since then, Gablé has turned to the writing of historical novels, all of which went up in the bestseller lists. In addition to the ongoing series about the history of the (fictional) Waringham family, which is closely linked to the English ruling houses of the Middle Ages and the early modern period, Gablé wrote other novels, which also play in the Middle Ages.
