I am sure you are right, and I think that Mia/Meier is similarly a modern fiction though Viking reeanctors on this side of the pond play it. I will be taking both Farkle and Mia from my web site unless I hear different.
There are plenty of very good authentic games to play though.
What about Blind Dice?

Yeah, I get questions from 18th and 19th century reenactors every once
in a while who are asking for farkle dice sets, but I've never seen
any hard evidence for it even that early.
