I love to read different novels about the same person.  I find I gain better insight and understand of the characters.  How about you?  Have you read a group of novels about the same person that you enjoyed?  Please share!

Actually I can think of a lot of historical figures that I've read multiple novels about.  Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Mary Queen of Scots, King Arthur, Elizabeth I.  in fact I've recently decided I'm saturated with Henry and Arthur and plan to avoid novels about them for a while.  There are lots of other historical figures out there I'd like to read about.

I love different novels about Arthur (well most of the time), Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II.
