Help me find historical fiction starring the kinds of people described in this awesome comment

So I'm looking for stories about the quiet badasses that make Big Problems for Important People go away -- the more ridiculous and suspenseful, the better.
I'm hoping such a thing exists for historical fiction set in the Roman Empire, the middle ages, the Renaissance -- I'm looking for troubled royalty more than I am modern politics. I'm especially interested in elaborate dances of social protocol and formal etiquette (note: I am ok with suggestions that tread into romantic/thriller territory).
I recognize that this list of characteristics is kind of narrow, but Mefi's tastes spread into some pretty tight niches.
