The Bridgertons

A Guide to the Original Eight Novels

Introduced to readers between the years 2000 and 2006, The original Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn largely takes place between the years 1813 and 1827, with prologues and first and second epilogues extending the time frame.  In order by age, the Bridgerton siblings are Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory and Hyacinth. The eight children are distinguished amongst society by their strong resemblance to their late father, Edmund and to each other, and their deep reddish brown hair.
