Versailles no Bara, Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu Recommendations
Though the content is significantly different (a space opera as opposed to a story on the French Revolution), the presentation and themes are very much similar. Political corruption—especially within the aristocracy—is a major theme in both titles. Both sides of the conflict are never portrayed as being intrinsically good or bad: there are only circumstances. Some parallels also exist within the characters; for example the relationship between Oscar and Andre resembling that of Reinhard and Kircheis.
Legend Of Galactic Heroes may not be a shoujo like Rose Of Versailles so the romantic aspect is missing, but pretty much everything else about the series are similar, I may risk and say that LOGH went to take some aspects and influences of Rose, mainly the political and social critic of the aristocracy. The dramatic aspect and overall feeling throughout the series are pretty similar too not to speak that even the narrator has the same feel.
Completely different plotwise but similar in nature. LoGH is a fictional space opera while Rose of Versailles is about the French Revolution. Yet both have a political background and deal with corruption and the consequences thereof in their own setting. There's a great cast of both main and side characters who develop from fairly unknown to people with massive influence. Moreover, the relationship between Reinhard and Kircheis is similar to that of Oscar and André.
Aristocracy-centric political dramas that make use of headstrong characters, an extensive setting, and smart presentation, carrying a very old-fashioned flair throughout.
The two anime definitely have the same vibe and possess common main themes like corruption, political systems clashing and the fight for democracy by some party of the story.

The time periods the stories happens is very different but holds many similar social and moral problems.
The main characters develop a lot through the two long anime and change their minds at some time, most characters are not one-dimensional and they learn with their mistakes.
Both anime are almost like animated documentaries of war. If you
