I just recently had my interest in Queen Victoria sparked after seeing The Young Victoria, and when I checked for fiction about her life, I came across Victoria Victorious by Jean Plaidy and bought it.
I know Plaidy is a prolific author who's had a bunch of reprints, so when I was looking though her backlist on Wikipedia, I found that she did a series on Queen Victoria in the seventies. The titles are:
I assume Victoria Victorious is different from these books, but if it's not, I'm curious to know if VV could be a reprint of the series into one book? I'm thinking not, as VV was allegedly out in 1985 according to Wikipedia, and the Queen Victoria series was from 1972-4, but I wouldn't want to get the series and then be gypped! :)
I'd appreciate if any Plaidy fans could clarify this-- if the books are just Plaidy's early work on Queen Victoria and VV was a separate work, or if the current VV is a reprint. Thank you!
Hi Tracy. Victoria Victorious is indeed a separate book. It is part of Plaidy's Queens of England series (a group of standalone novels about different queens.)
The four-volume Victoria series has been reprinted in the UK.
