Going inside real historical characters' heads

Here's a blog entry from Guy Gavriel Kay, a great Dorothy Dunnett fan, in which he discusses whether, in historical fiction, real figures should be confined to serving as backdrops for the playing out of the story of the author’s invented POV ones. He uses Dorothy's portrayal of Richard Chancellor as an example.
