Canine people. I'm not kidding. Cynocephali are an old medieval myth of dog headed people. They even have a Christian Saint, St Christopher. Though his origins as one of these is based on severe mistranslations but we can ignore that.

Tie this together with an already established medieval/Renaissance race, the Lupin of the Savage Coast D&D setting, and you have french canine people who live in a country called Renardy (a reference to Reynard the Fox which is Fox the Fox in French).

I still remember that episode where they argued Washington was a better general than Napoleon.
Though there is some reasoning behind it that almost makes sense. In an earlier season they matched up US Marines against I think Spetznaz and the Muhreens lost. This led to such a massive viewer backlash that the productive team decided Americans were never again allowed to lose on the show, no matter how ridiculous. Turns out their new strategy worked.

The main character doesn't want to be the main character so you end up getting (a fairly accurate, for once) Nobunaga carrying most of the plot. A large chunk of the historical characters are Japanese but there's a fair amount of European ones too. There is some fanservicey stuff (for either sexual orientation) but the meat of the content is good action scenes and war strategy. The guy writing the manga also did Hellsing, if that helps temper expectations.

>which is Fox the Fox in French

In fairness, the French word for fox was originally something to the effect of "goupil", from the Latin "vulpes" (somehow). But the stories of Renard the Fox were so popular in France that "renard" replaced "goupil".

So Renard the Fox in French is more properly "Renard the Renard".

"Renard" comes from Germanic and means something to the effect of "brave/hardy advice".

You now realize that in English, the equivalent of this linguistic development would be "Pooh" replacing the word bear.

From wikipedia:
Reports of dog-headed races can also be traced back to Greek antiquity. In the fifth century BC, the Greek physician Ctesias wrote a detailed report on the existence of cynocephali in India, known as Indica.[2] Similarly, the Greek traveller Megasthenes claimed to know about dog-headed people in India who lived in the mountains, communicated through barking, wore the skins of wild animals and lived by hunting.[3] Herodotus reports claims by ancient Libyans that such creatures inhabit the east of their lands, as well as headless men and various other anomalies.[4]

The best estimate for the place where the battle between the Argonauts and the Cynocephali took place is modern day North Serbia, or South Hungary.
