Secrets, Love, and Betrayal: Philippa Gregory’s Historical Tudor Novels in Reading Order


Share Secrets, Love, and Betrayal: Philippa Gregory’s Historical Tudor Novels in Reading Order

Philippa Gregory is the queen of queenly historical fiction, and we all love her for it. Many of her books focus on royal women in the English court across centuries, and the passions and power struggle they deal with. Each novel is so thoroughly researched that you get a true look at what women had to go through during each period of time in which the story is focused, and her writing is so riveting: the stories are full of secrecy, revenge, and romance.  

I was lucky enough to read her newest book, TIDELANDS, which is the first installment in the new The Fairmile series. It was also the first Philippa Gregory book I’d ever read, and my immediate reaction was to be in complete awe of how spectacularly she builds the world in the story so you get a true sense of the time and the characters.

For someone like me who loves historical fiction, her books are a gold mine—and lucky for everyone, she’s written upwards of 30 other novels to dig into. If you’re just diving into a Philippa Gregory series, or you’re already a fan and not sure which one to pick up next, the best place might be the Plantagenets and Tudor series. But with 15 books in the series covering everything from The War of the Roses to the Elizabethan Era, it can be hard to know where to start.

So, if you’re looking take on Philippa Gregory’s robustly built world of historical fiction chronologically, here’s the order you should read the series in!

The Constant Princess

by Philippa Gregory

Next up: The infamous Tudor court, starting with Katherine of Aragon. You may already know her as the woman wife Henry VIII divorces to marry Anne Boleyn, but before she dealt with this devastating ordeal, she was daughter of Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand of Spain, betrothed— and eventually married—to Prince Arthur of England, Henry’s older brother. Their love, and their plans for the country, are destroyed when Prince Arthur dies tragically, and she has to navigate the Tudor court: avoiding desire and loneliness, dealing with spies and poverty, and leading a military battle, all while trying to grasp at a chance to be the queen.


Three Sisters, Three Queens

by Philippa Gregory

Sisters, yet enemies: The lives of three Tudor women are intertwined in their desire for power. Katherine of Aragon and her two sisters-in-law, Margaret and Mary Tudor, are uniquely bonded in more ways than one. As they each become queens in different countries, their husbands and children die, and kings are overthrown, their relationships grow even more complicated and intense. Get ready for the betrayal, loss, and passion that only a book about sisters who become rivals could bring.


The Boleyn Inheritance

by Philippa Gregory

Spoiler alert: Henry VIII had many, many wives, which we can only imagine (and Gregory so astutely depicts) caused some suspicions and competition at court. After Anne is killed, terror and jealousy run amok among the royal circles—particularly between three women, who each will be impacted by Henry’s choice of a fourth wife. There’s the woman who Henry intends to marry to gain a political alliance, Anne of Cleves; the intensely passionate woman he desires, Katherine Howard; and Jane Rochford, the malicious and lustful woman who ultimately sent her sister-in-law, Anne Boleyn, to death.

The Last Tudor

by Philippa Gregory

Henry VIII left behind a bit of a tangled mess with his multiple marriages and resulting children. His son, Edward, died at 15, and in his will left the crown to Jane Grey—a Tudor cousin—instead of his half sister Mary, the Catholic daughter of Katherine of Aragon. However, Mary claimed the throne anyway, and killed Jane. Jane had a sister, Katherine, who later becomes heir to childless Queen Elizabeth, and as such was not allowed to marry and produce a Tudor son herself. Got it so far? Good, because this is where it gets really juicy: Katherine has a secret marriage, a secret pregnancy, and is condemned. Her sister, Mary, now faces exceptional danger as the last with the family name, and a desire to defy the queen.

Philippa Gregory is a historical novelist out of Britain. She has been writing since 1987. Philippa is best known for writing The Other Boleyn Girl which went on to win the Romantic Novel of the Year Award from the Romantic Novelists’ Association.

Gregory was born on January 9, 1954, on the continent of Africa in Nairobi, Kenya. She is the second daughter of author Percy Gregory, a radio operator for East African Airways. When she was two years old, her family migrated to Bristol, England to live.

She was known to be a rebel in their school at Colston’s Girls’ School. Despite her reputation, she garnered a B grade in the subject English and two E grades in Geography and History at the A level. She had went into the journalism college in Cardiff and spent a year being an apprentice with the Portsmouth News.

During this time, she earned her in English literature at the University of Sussex where she had switched into a history course. Philippa worked at a radio station known as BBD for about two years prior to attending the University of Edinburgh.

The University of Edinburgh is where she earned her doctorate on 18th-century literature. She taught at the Durham University, the University of Teesside, and at the Open University. Philippa was also a fellow at Kingston University.

Following the success of Wideacre, during the publication of The Favoured Child, she transferred south to be near Midhurst, West Sussex the place where the Wideacre trilogy was set. Gregory married Paul Carter, her second husband there, and the two had a son together. Things ultimately did not work out with Paul Carter and she later married Anthony Mason, who she first met in Hartlepool.

Philippa writes historical novels that she sets in a variety of different periods in history, primarily the Tudor period of the last 16th century. While reading the novels set in the 17th century, it inspired her to write the Lacy trilogy. The series was a best-seller, the story focuses on things like love, incest and land.

A Respectable Trade, a novel of the slave trade in England, as set in 18th-century Bristol, was accepted by Gregory for adaptation as a four-part drama series for BBC Television. Her script was nominated for a BAFTA. Gregory also received an award from the Committee for Racial Equality.

The Other Boleyn Girl is one of Gregory’s most popular books. The story sees Mary Boleyn coming to court at the age of just fourteen when she manages to catch the eye of Henry VIII. Mary is easily dazzled by the king and falls in love with him and her new unofficial role as unofficial queen. However, it doesn’t take her long to realize that she is simply a pawn in her family’s ambitious plans. As the king’s interest in her begins to wane, she is forced to step aside for her best friend, rival, and sister: Anne Boleyn. In order to find her own destiny, Mary realizes that she will need to defy her family and take her fate into her own hands.

The first novel in the Wideacre series is also called Wideacre. The story introduces us to Beatrice Lacy who is as beautiful as she is strong-willed. She is a bit of an outsider of her time as she refuses to conform to the social customs of her time. Wideacre has her heritage and her beloved Wiseacre estate, but she is set to lose them once she is wed so she sets out to keep them by any means necessary and protect her ancestral name. Beatrice is ruthless and will use whatever it takes: seduction, betrayal, or even murder. Her scheming gets her near to her ultimate goal, but she remains haunted by the one person who knows her plans and her capacity for evil.

The Queen’s Fool takes place in the winter of 1553. Hannah Green is a fourteen-year-old girl pursued by the Inquisition who is forced to flee from her home in Spain along with her father. She is no ordinary girl though and has been gifted with the “sight” which allows her to see the future, a gift that is priceless in the Tudor court. Hannah ends up being adopted by Robert Dudley, the son of King Edward’s protector. Dudley brings her to court as a “holy fool” for Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth. She ends up working as a spy and endangered by the laws against heresy, treason, and witchcraft. She must choose between the safe life of a commoner and the danger of the royal family.

The Cousins’ War series begins with The White Queen which sees the throne of England at stake as the Wars of the Roses begin. Elizabeth Woodville is a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition who secretly marries the newly crowned king of England. She ends up rising to the demands of her family as she fights of the success of her family. Now, her sons have become the central figures in an unsolved mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the lost princes in the Tower of London.

Gregory also wrote the Order of Darkness series which beings with Changeling. The story begins in 1453 in Italy where 17-year-old Luca Vero is accused of heresy. He is cast out of his religious order for using science to question superstitious beliefs. However, he soon finds himself drawn into a secret sect: The Order of the Dragon. The sect is to investigate evil and danger in its many forms, and strange occurrences across Europe. He meets Isolde, a young girl shut up in a nunnery, who is accused of practicing witchcraft. They meet when Luca is sent to investigate, but he instead himself was drawn to her and planning her escape. The two will end up traveling across Europe with Freize and Ishraq, and encounter werewolves, alchemists, witches, and death-dancers. Their journey will lead them towards a real-life historical figure who holds the boundaries of Christendom and the secrets of the Order of the Dragon.

Philippa Gregory

English historical novelist

Philippa GregoryCBE (born 9 January 1954) is an English historical novelist who has been publishing since 1987. The best known of her works is The Other Boleyn Girl (2001), which in 2002 won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award from the Romantic Novelists' Association[1] and has been adapted into two separate films.

AudioFile magazine has called Gregory "the queen of British historical fiction".[2]

Early life and education[edit]

Philippa Gregory was born on 9 January 1954 in Nairobi, at that time serving as capital city of the Colony and Protectorate of Kenya (modern-day Republic of Kenya), the second daughter of Elaine (Wedd) and Arthur Percy Gregory, a radio operator and navigator for East African Airways.[3] When she was two years old, her family moved to Bristol, England.[4]

She was a "rebel" at Colston's Girls' School[4][5] where she obtained a B grade in English and two E grades in History and Geography at A-level. She then went to journalism college in Cardiff and spent a year as an apprentice with the Portsmouth News before she managed to gain a place on an English literature degree course at the University of Sussex, where she switched to a history course. In 1982, she received a B.A. degree in history from Sussex University.[6] She worked for BBC radio for two years before attending University of Edinburgh, where she obtained a Ph.D. degree in 18th-century literature in 1985 for her thesis entitled "The popular fiction of eighteenth-century commercial circulating libraries".[7][8] Gregory has taught at the University of Durham, University of Teesside, and the Open University, and was made a Fellow of Kingston University in 1994.[citation needed]



She has written novels set in several different historical periods, though primarily the Tudor period and the 16th century. Reading a number of novels set in the 17th century led her to write the best-selling Lacey trilogy Wideacre, which is a story about the love of land and incest, The Favoured Child and Meridon. This was followed by The Wise Woman. A Respectable Trade, a novel of the slave trade in England, set in 18th-century Bristol, was adapted by Gregory for a four-part drama series for BBC television. Gregory's script was nominated for a BAFTA, won an award from the Committee for Racial Equality, and the film was shown worldwide.[citation needed]

Two novels about a gardening family are set during the English Civil War: Earthly Joys and Virgin Earth, while she has in addition written contemporary fiction – Perfectly Correct, Mrs Hartley and the Growth Centre, The Little House and Zelda's Cut. She has also written for children.[citation needed]

Some of her novels have won awards and have been adapted into television dramas. The most successful of her novels has been The Other Boleyn Girl, published in 2001 and adapted for BBC television in 2003 with Natascha McElhone, Jodhi May and Jared Harris. In the year of its publication, The Other Boleyn Girl also won the Romantic Novel of the Year[9] and it has subsequently spawned sequels – The Queen's Fool,The Virgin's Lover,The Constant Princess,The Boleyn Inheritance, and The Other Queen. Miramax bought the film rights to The Other Boleyn Girl and released a film of the same name in February 2008.

Gregory has also published a series of books about the Plantagenets, the ruling houses that preceded the Tudors, and the Wars of the Roses. Her first book The White Queen, published in 2009, centres on the life of Elizabeth Woodville the wife of Edward IV. The Red Queen, published in 2010, is about Margaret Beaufort the mother of Henry VII and grandmother to Henry VIII. The Lady of the Rivers (2011), is the life of Jacquetta of Luxembourg, mother of Elizabeth Woodville. The Kingmaker's Daughter, published in 2012, is about Anne Neville, the wife of Richard III, and The White Princess (2013) centres on the life of Elizabeth of York, wife of Henry VII and the mother of Henry VIII. The latest work is the 2017 novel The Last Tudor. The 2013 BBC One television series The White Queen is a 10-part adaptation of Gregory's novels The White Queen, The Red Queen and The Kingmaker's Daughter (2012).[10]

In 2013, Helen Brown of The Telegraph wrote that "Gregory has made an impressive career out of breathing passionate, independent life into the historical noblewomen whose personalities had previously lain flat on family trees, remembered only as diplomatic currency and brood mares."[11] She added, "Gregory’s historical fiction has always been entertainingly speculative (those tempted to sneer should note that she’s never claimed otherwise) and comes with lashings of romantic licence."[11]

In 2011 she contributed a short story "Why Holly Berries are as Red as Roses" to an anthology supporting the Woodland Trust. The anthology, Why Willows Weep has so far helped The Woodland Trust plant approximately 50,000 trees.[12]

Gregory was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2021 Birthday Honours for services to literature and to charity in the UK and the Gambia.[13]


Gregory has said that her "commitment to historical accuracy" is a hallmark of her writing.[14] This is disputed by historians. Historian David Starkey, appearing alongside Gregory in a documentary about Anne Boleyn, described her work as "good Mills and Boon",[15] adding that: "We really should stop taking historical novelists seriously as historians. The idea that they have authority is ludicrous."[16]Susan Bordo criticised Gregory's claims to historical accuracy as "self-deceptive and self-promoting chutzpah", and notes that it is not so much the many inaccuracies in her work as "Gregory's insistence on her meticulous adherence to history that most aggravates the scholars."[17]

In her novel The Other Boleyn Girl, her portrayal of Henry VIII's second wife Anne Boleyn drew criticism.[18][19] The novel depicts Anne as cold and ruthless, as well as heavily implying that the accusations that she committed adultery and incest with her brother were true, despite it being widely accepted that she was innocent of the charges.[20] Novelist Robin Maxwell refused on principle to write a blurb for this book, describing its characterisation of Anne as "vicious, unsupportable".[21]


She is a frequent contributor to magazines and newspapers, with short stories, features and reviews. She is also a frequent broadcaster and a regular contestant on Round Britain Quiz for BBC Radio 4 and the Tudor expert for Channel 4's Time Team. She won the 29 December 2008 edition of Celebrity Mastermind on BBC1, taking Elizabeth Woodville as her specialist subject.


Gregory runs a small charity building wells in school gardens in The Gambia.[22] Gardens for The Gambia was established in 1993 when Gregory was in The Gambia, researching for her book A Respectable Trade.

Since then the charity has dug almost 200 low technology, low budget and therefore easily maintained wells, which are on-stream and providing water to irrigate school and community gardens to provide meals for the poorest children and harvest a cash crop to buy school equipment, seeds and tools.

In addition to wells, the charity has piloted a successful bee-keeping scheme, funded feeding programmes and educational workshops in batik and pottery and is working with larger donors to install mechanical boreholes in some remote areas of the country where the water table is not accessible by digging alone.

Philippa Gregory is a patron of The UK Chagos Support Association,[14] which supports the Chagos islanders in their legal disputes with the British government. The people of Chagos were relocated by the British government when the archipelago in the Indian Ocean was cleared in the 1960s and 1970s to make way for an important U.S. airbase. Gregory often speaks about the Chagossians' situation and lobbies the government to take action.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Gregory wrote her first novel Wideacre while completing her doctorate[14] and lived during that time in a cottage on the Pennine Way with her first husband Peter Chislett, editor of the Hartlepool Mail, and their baby daughter, Victoria. They divorced before the book was published.

Following the success of Wideacre and the publication of The Favoured Child, she moved south to near Midhurst, West Sussex, where the Wideacre trilogy was set. Here Gregory married Paul Carter, her second husband there, with whom she has a son, named Adam. She divorced for a second time.

After the break-up of her second marriage, she met and married Anthony Mason, whom she had first met during her time in Hartlepool.

Gregory now lives on a 100-acre (0.40 km2) farm in the North York Moors National Park, with her husband, children and stepchildren (six in all). Her interests include riding, walking, skiing, and gardening.
