Context: my protagonist is a single woman travelling on horseback with an all-male company, from whom she has reason to fear violence and would be strongly resistant to sharing sleeping quarters with them. They'll be on the road for a period of several weeks, and can't expect to reach an inn or a town every night. It's early spring in a temperate climate where rain is normal, so sleeping under the stars isn't really feasible.
Edited to clarify: she fears violence but doesn't have a choice about travelling with them, and isn't actually going to come under threat - of the six of them, two would actively defend her and only one wishes her harm, but can't act on said wish. I promise it makes sense in the story!
I wonder if it would be sensical in a medieval-ish fantasy setting for her to have her own small tent rather than have to bunk with them or sleep under the stars. I know that it's possible in the modern day to have a tent sized just for one person, of course, and given the limitations the setting puts on tech this tent might be sized for two people, I just wonder what such a thing would look like in the first place/how it would be constructed.
Can anyone speak to whether such a thing was/would be possible (especially something that would be portable on horseback), and if so what it might look like? I'm feeling a little unsure about arbitrarily sticking the detail in, and have been having trouble with the research myself. If you think it wouldn't make sense, any other suggestions as to how to deal with the situation, other than "she'll just have to share"?
