I know it had Queen in the title...

Hundreds of historical novels have "king" or "queen" in the title, but without seeing the cover or description, how do you know which monarch a book's about? Miss Moppet and other members have compiled this list to help you.

I know it had Queen in the title...

Post by Miss Moppet » Thu March 25th, 2010, 11:07 pm

I'm getting plain confused by all the Queen books especially as many of them appear under different titles for different markets or at different times and often the said Queen doesn't feature as centrally as you'd expect. So, I started this thread as a place to gather together all the Queen books as people come across them, answering the following questions:

Who is the Queen in the title?

Is she the main character?

Has this book been published under a different title?


I'll post the first entry myself in a second.

ETA: Going to put an index in this post, alphabetical by title, which I will try to remember to update. May help authors desperate for an original title!

UPDATE: I am now adding in which queen the 'queen' in the title refers to - if any. NB: the queen in the title is not necessarily the main character in the book.

Entries in red - we don't know which queen this book is about! Any info welcome.
