      I agree with all but the Haradrim, they're more like The Ottoman Empire or The Qidri or The Nabatean Kingdom.

    • Rhudel in the mod has more inspiration from turkic tribes then far east asians

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkic_Khaganate

      I think Near Harad has more inspiration from North Africa and the Middle East.

    • I would say Gondor is more akin to Holy roman empire then actual Roman empire, though there is no direct equivalent for any faction, only inspiration.

    • I belive Rohan is Anglo-Saxons with horses.

      Holy Roman Empire is germanic, while the gondorians were inspired by italy, so rome makes more sense to be the primary inspiration.
