Alison Weir books, which I've read.

Nigel Davies
 
The Six Wives Of Henry VIII
The Six Wives Of Henry VIII
"An excellent book that makes you feel as if you are living in Tudor England.  The description of historical figures is masterly."
Henry VIII: King and Court
Henry VIII: King and Court
"A remarkable book that describes the buildings, courtly life and affairs of state in a fascinating way, which never becomes dull."
Katherine Swynford: The Story of John of Gaunt and His Scandalous Duchess
Katherine Swynford: The Story of John of Gaunt and His Scandalous Duchess
"A good attempt and a worthwhile read, but there is much conjecture and one never really gets to know the people in the book: it is too far in the past."
The Lady Elizabeth
The Lady Elizabeth
"A good historical fiction book that mainly relates the known facts."
Elizabeth, The Queen
Elizabeth, The Queen
"One of the best books around about our virgin queen. Recommended."
Lancaster And York: The Wars of the Roses
Lancaster And York: The Wars of the Roses
"An excellent background to the build up and actualisation of the so-called Wars of the Roses.  Just wanted it to continue."
The Lady In The Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn (Queen of England Series)
The Lady In The Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn (Queen of England Series)
"A moving account of the last days of Anne Boleyn. Intriguing!"
Eleanor of Aquitaine: By the Wrath of God, Queen of England
Eleanor of Aquitaine: By the Wrath of God, Queen of England
"A good description about the life of Kings Henry II, Richard I and King John.  A pity we don't know more about Eleanor herself.  It is a very interesting read but could be a bit heavy going for some."
Isabella: She-Wolf of France, Queen of England
Isabella: She-Wolf of France, Queen of England
"Mystery and intrigue in 14th Century England and France.  A fascinating portrait of the period."
The Princes in the Tower
The Princes in the Tower
"A very readable account of those dark days of the late 15th century.  Well written and never dull, there is no sitting on the fence with Alison arguing her case with logic and clarity."
The Captive Queen
The Captive Queen
"An enjoyable fictional read about the life and times of Eleanor of Aquitaine"
Innocent Traitor
Innocent Traitor
"A superior and moving fictional account of the life of Lady Jane Grey.  Very hard to put down."
Traitors of the Tower (Quick Reads)
Traitors of the Tower (Quick Reads)
"A very short introduction to those put to death at the Tower of London from 1483 - 1601.  Wouldn't say they were all traitors though.  Only 75 pages of text."
Children Of England: The Heirs of King Henry VIII 1547-1558
Children Of England: The Heirs of King Henry VIII 1547-1558
"A very vivid portrayal of Tudor life during the turbulent times of religious persecutions.  Well written and thought provoking with many "what if?" scenarios."
Mary Queen Of Scots: And The Murder Of Lord Darnley
Mary Queen Of Scots: And The Murder Of Lord Darnley
"This is a remarkable indepth study of the murder of Mary's second husband.  It goes into incredible detail and is Alison's most testing book; but is a rewarding read if you are able to persist!"
A Dangerous Inheritance
A Dangerous Inheritance
"Two good stories about two Katherines; pity the stories appear mixed up in one book."
