I'm watching the Miniseries now, and I know its three books in a 10 part miniseries. Can anyone tell me where in the series does "The white Queen" end and "The Red Queen" begins? Where does "The king makers daughter" begins?

Example
There's an episode titled "The Bad Queen" is that from "The Red Queen" or is it still from "The white Queen' ?

I appreciate the help. Thanks.


Beth Hopkins All three books actually happen at the same time, just from each womans experiences and point of view

Ohhh I see. Thanks.

Paula Also I think the mini series is only focusing on the White Queen.

No, I don't think so. It says that its the White Queen, Red Queen and The king maker's daughter.


Lucy All 3 book cross over. they are just point of view of 3 different people. But Philippa Gregory puts as White Queen, Red Queen and then The King Maker's Daughter. (But i put it Red Queen, White Queen and then The King Maker's Daughter. But thats just me)

Thanks Lucy. I see that you only gave The white Queen 2 stats. Do you like the Red Queen Better?


Lucy Yes I do. The red queen to me shows that even back then women could play a big part and make shore there side one (as she did)

I've watched the Mini series. What did you think of it?

Lucy That's the thing these books they don't work like that. For most of the times it's all happening at the same time just 3 different point of view. In the books we start the red queen when she was getting married , white queen when she meets Edward and the kingmakers daughter when she meets Elizabeth !!

Jeez I'm so embarrassed! So the Red Queen and the White Queen is the same person?

Lucy Oh no no no. Sorry they are a bit odd. No two different people. The books show the same events thought different points of view. They see the world differently

OHHH Okay Jeez. For a second I thought I was the Dumbest person on the face of the Earth!

what does 'shore' mean? Do you mean 'won' instead of 'one'?

I think you mean 'sure' instead of 'shore'.

Lucy Yeah sorry. dyslexic spelling never been grate for me


Joana I totally agree with the comment above, I loved the mini-series, even though I was kinda afraid of hating it (I am not known for liking book adaptations). However it surprised me a lot because it was really well adapted, the acting was great and the way the entwined the three books was beautifully done.
Nonetheless, I just finished reading The White Princess and I would've loved if they had included that aswell. Maybe they can adapt it to the big screen? I think it would be very interesting to see the beginning of the Tudor dinasty bloom.

I hear that The Staz Cable channel will continue with the story. So I guess The White Princess will be Adapted for that.

Hopefully this is true.
