What’s allowed in historical fiction

I am curious and would really like to know what’s allowed in historical fiction and especially the portrayal of historical figures.

In terms of creative freedom what are you allowed to do ?

Would I have to create original characters and borrow some of the historical figures history or not? Or can I use an historical figure to tell my story as long as it doesn’t discredit significant historical events?
