Shonda Rhimes as well as Julia Quinn have collaborated on a ‘Bridgerton’ prequel novel featuring Queen Charlotte


Though it’s not unusual for authors to set their novels in the Tudor era, few have done so. Most Tudor-era novels take place at the court of Elizabeth I and her successor James I. That’s why the news of a new prequel novel co-written by best-selling author Julia Quinn with Shonda Rhimes is especially grand:

Queen Charlotte is one of England’s most fascinating monarchs, and a novel about her will finally bring her story to life. Quinn and Rhimes’ Queen Charlotte is a prequel novel. It will center around Charlotte’s childhood and her relationship with her grandmother, the famed Henrietta Maria of France (1609–1669). The novel also promises to introduce us to the young, handsome King Charles II, who was born in Scotland in 1630.

In addition to Quinn and Rhimes, you can expect additional writers for the novel. Here’s where things get interesting: Each book will focus on each of these writers’ takes on a different character.

The Bridgerton family is one of the most respected of all families in London society. The Bridgertons have been around for centuries, and they are also known as a very close-knit, loyal family. As a result of their longstanding involvement in military service to the Crown, as well as their money and social standing; they were accorded numerous benefits not extended to other families.

These benefits include a seat in Parliament and the right to hold a title of nobility. The Bridgertons are also known for their good looks, wealth, and attractiveness simply under who they are.


The story of the Bridgertons starts with Gregory Bridgerton, the elder son born to an Earl. The Earl dies when Gregory is very young; and he is succeeded by his third son (Gregory’s brother), who eventually inherits the title and estate.
