I was nosy enough to buy a copy I found on Amazon just now. (What did I spend money on before Amazon?)

Evidently, Defenders of the Faith was originally published in the 1950's under one of Plaidy's earlier pen names, Ellalice Tate.

Me too, they re-issued them last year in the UK.

I did not know that these 2 were the same book. To Hold the Crown is on my WL and someone on paperbackswap was offering Uneasy Lies the Head and I turned it down. I should have checked it out first. However, I did get 4 of her books this week from PBS - The Courts of Love, Lady in the Tower, Revolt of the Eaglets [I]and Plantagenet Prelude[/I]. Is there some place that gives the old name and the new name?

Maybe those of you "in the know" on this board might start a thread?

I have a 1971 reprint of Defenders of the Faith which I got off eBay a few years back. It's under the Plaidy name. It wasn't cheap but not outrageous either... there are three other used copies on Amazon UK now going for about what I paid. I suspect the re-release will be out by the time I get to it.
