Anachronisms 

Throughout the series, Stephen and Matilda are both referred to as "Majesty". English kings and queens did not use the title "Majesty" until the middle of the 16th century, nearly 400 years after the setting of this series

Character error 

Prior Philip is referred to by several characters as 'Father', 'a Priest' and a character at one point goes to make Confession to him. In actual fact Philip was a monk and never a priest, so should have been referred to as 'Brother' not 'Father'. Also, in Catholic ritual only priests can hear confessions. Monks cannot.
