so I'm doing a history based EPQ and I'm having some difficulties with referencing.

Whenever I look up what you need to reference, it always comes up with 'facts' or 'something you've paraphrased'. But surely this is a bit over the top, citing every fact? If I'm paraphrasing a historians account of events e.g. Isabella of Castile set up the Inquisition in 1480, do you have to cite this? In other essays I've looked at they rarely cite the source of historical info, they usually just cite a quote or an argument made by a historian.

Also what if the historical book I'm finding this fact in, is cited from another book?... what do I do then?
