My Next Story


I really want to novelise some historical person's life. So, I've listed a few that I have some resources related to, since my collection of history books seems to be growing daily. Well, weekly, anyway.

Now, they're all English, except Isabella who was French and then an English Queen, Catherine of Aragon who was Spanish and then an English Queen, and Marie Antoinette who was Austrian and then a French Queen. Oh, and Mary, Queen of Scots, was, obviously, Scottish.

Notice they're almost all women? Well, yeah...

If you've got any suggestions of other people, I'd love to know, too.

I think that a lot has been done about Mary Queen of Scots, and Marie Antoinette, but it would be interesting to see more about Catherine of Aragon or Queen Isabella, some of the lesser known or famous Queens/Kings would pique my interest! ^__^

Actually, its surprisingly how many novels you get about Catherine of Aragon's life between her two marriages. I'd be most interested in her childhood, and her last few years.

As for Isabella, I don't know all that much about her. But I'm in the middle of a biography. Hopefully that'll enlighten me about her story. I think it should be interesting.

But the Tudor period - I could tell you a fair bit about that.

Oh... off the subject, but does anyone know where I could get a good biography of Isabella of Castile?
