Can anyone help me identify the titles in this series? I've looked up all Plaidy's ISBN's but can't tell from those listings (her Plantagenet series is noted in parenthesis next to titles), and I've looked all over the specific discussion forums for her on the historical fiction buffs website, but I can't figure out which ones to read...help!  Thanks in advance.

I pulled out my copy of Katharine of Aragon which lists the titles by series -- there's no particular "Queens of England" series listed.  :(

Although the Wikipedia entry on Jean Plaidy (Eleanor HIbbert) lists them as such:

The Queens of England Series

  1. Myself My Enemy (1983)
  2. Queen of This Realm: The Story of Elizabeth I (1984)
  3. Victoria Victorious (1985)
  4. The Lady in the Tower (1986)
  5. The Courts of Love: The Story of Eleanor of Aquitaine (1987)
  6. In the Shadow of the Crown (1988)
  7. The Queen's Secret: The Story of Queen Katherine (1989)
  8. The Reluctant Queen: The Story of Anne of York (1990)
  9. The Pleasures of Love: The Story of Catherine of Braganza (1991)
  10. William's Wife (1992)
  11. The Rose Without a Thorn (1993)

Thanks so much ladies--I had no idea about the others either, so I'll put them on the list too!

They are reissuing most of them but changing the titles on the reissue, so it looks like there are new ones, but they are really just retitling them.

  1. Myself My Enemy (1983)
  2. Queen of This Realm: The Story of Elizabeth I (1984)
  3. Victoria Victorious (1985)
  4. The Lady in the Tower (1986)
  5. The Courts of Love: The Story of Eleanor of Aquitaine (1987)
  6. In the Shadow of the Crown (1988)
  7. The Queen's Secret: The Story of Queen Katherine (1989)
  8. The Reluctant Queen: The Story of Anne of York (1990)
  9. The Pleasures of Love: The Story of Catherine of Braganza (1991)
  10. William's Wife (1992)
