Jean Plaidy's England - Chronological Reading Order - Part 1

Kylie Veale
The list author says: "I am hooked on English history, royalty, and Jean Plaidy -- though in trying to find a reading order for her English saga's, decided to make my own based on the years each book spans.

Part 1 (32 books) spans from William the Conqueror in 1066 to the end of the period of Henry VIII and his sisters in 1547.

Part 2 (30 books) commences 1553 with Mary Tudor (Henry VIII's daughter) ascending to the throne, and finishes with the death of Queen Victoria in 1901."
