Eleanor of Aquitaine, A Life by Alison Weir
Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen consort of France and England and Duchess of Aquitaine in her own right, was among one of the most powerful rulers of Europe and one of the most fascinating women in 12th century English history. Renowned in her time for being the wife of two kings and mother of three, Eleanor of Aquitaine was one of the great heroines of the Middle Ages. At a time when women were regarded as little more than chattel, Eleanor managed to defy convention as she exercised power in the political sphere. In this beautifully written biography, Alison Weir paints a vibrant portrait of this truly exceptional woman, and provides new insights into her intimate world.
