POLL: Is The Spanish Bride Historical Fiction?

Last week’s poll set off some controversy among our Heyerite fellowship: does The Spanish Bride count as historical fiction, or is it better classified as a Regency Romance? Our position is that it is based on a true story, and that its main characters were real people, so it’s historical fiction for sure, regardless of that fact that it is set in the Regency period. Where do you stand on the question?
