Emmuska Orczy wrote more than just The Scarlet Pimpernel

While the Scarlet Pimpernel may be the most famous book in that series, it was in truth one of many, and while the stories were written in a different order than the that which events within the story’s universe take place, readers may want to proceed through the universe in chronological order.  With that in mind, this list from wikipedia, tries to place the books in Chronological Order:

The Laughing Cavalier
The First Sir Percy
The Scarlet Pimpernel
Sir Percy Leads the Band
The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel
I Will Repay
The Elusive Pimpernel
Lord Tony’s Wife
The Way of the Scarlet Pimpernel — concurrent with preceding 2 or 3 novels
Eldorado – unclear whether before, after, or concurrent with Mam’zelle Guillotine
Mam’zelle Guillotine – unclear whether before, after, or concurrent with Eldorado
Sir Percy Hits Back
Adventures of the Scarlet Pimpernel
The Triumph of the Scarlet Pimpernel – seems to have happened later than dates indicate
A Child of the Revolution
Pimpernel and Rosemary
