Chivalrous Deeds: A Historical Fiction Challenge

This challenge can be found on the Bippity Boppity Book Blog.
It was the name of this challenge that first caught my attention, I love tales of chivalry. :) This challenge is also interesting in the fact that it has no defined goal except to read more books set in a larger variety of times and places than anybody else, which adds a fun element of competition. For this challenge, you read historical novels with connections to court and royalty. However, you are not allowed to read a book set in the same court as the last one you read. For example, if I was to read a book about Elizabeth I, it is against the rules to read another about her right away but you can come back to her later after reading a book that is about, say, Richard the Lionheart. This rule makes things more interesting, I think. :)

1. The Tudor Secret by C.W, Gortner (Edward VI, Lady Jane Grey, Mary Tudor)
2. The Falcons of Montabard by Elizabeth Chadwick (Baldwin II of Jerusalem)
3. The Running Vixen by Elizabeth Chadwick (Henry I)
4. Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw (Hatshepsut)
5. Petra: City of Stone by T.L. Higley
