Book Description

The new book in the magnificent Eleanor of Aquitaine trilogy, following this fascinating queen as she fights for power amongst the perils of the royal court, from much-loved author Elizabeth Chadwick.

About the Author

Much of Elizabeth Chadwick's research is carried out as a member of Regia Anglorum, an early mediaeval re-enactment society with emphasis on accurately re-creating the past. She also tutors in the skill of writing historial and romantic fiction. She won a Betty Trask Award for The Wild Hunt and has been shortlisted for the RNA Awards four times.

Format: Hardcover
It is December 1154 and Eleanor of Aquitaine is crowned Queen of England in Westminster Abbey alongside her younger husband, the charismatic and ever restless King Henry II. Now Queen of England and Duchess of Normandy and Anjou, once Queen of France and always, in her own right, Duchess of Aquitaine, Eleanor is now in the realms of making history, becoming arguably the most famous and powerful woman of the Middle Ages. But the legend of Eleanor, the beautiful Duchess, muse of the troubadors, Crusader, Queen and mother to surely one of the most dysfunctional broods in royal history, is one well worth retelling and in no writer's hands is she safer than in the care of Elizabeth Chadwick. The Winter Crown is the second in a trilogy which will, I have no doubt, become the definitive fictional account of this remarkable woman, who is brought to life on these pages as Alienor.

The Summer Queen, the first of the novels, covers the early years of Alienor's life in France, culminating in her marriage to Henry, the son of Empress Matilda. In that novel, there are just glimpses of the character Alienor is marrying but, in The Winter Crown, Henry emerges in all his outrageous glory. Never without a mistress, Henry already has an illegitimate son and one of his first acts in The Winter Crown is to introduce the child into Alienor's household. She can be under no illusion - she has met her match.

The Winter Crown focuses on Alienor's prime years, the years in which she gave Henry child after child, becoming almost the brood mare she least wanted to be, years in which she lost children and the years that killed the one-time great love between Henry and Alienor.

Another great Elizabeth Chadwick book. This is the 2nd of the trilogy of Eleanor of Aquitaine and so eagerly awaited and it did not disappoint. Miss Chadwick obviously does a vast amount of research and sticks mainly to the history as we know it. Eleanor, from an early age becomes the Duchess of Aquitaine and to her Aquitaine (and later Richard) is the first love in her life. Louis and Henry both do not realise this. She is Duchess first and then queen. All she wanted from both relationships was a partnership and not to be seen as just another woman. Both of the men see her as a beautiful, intelligent woman but see her advice as interfering and this gets between both of her relationships very early on. The Winter Crown shows Eleanor as a woman of her age but blocked by the two men of her life for being able to show them that she could rule as well as them. They see her as a baby making machine and especially with Henry, where she was pregnant or getting over a pregnancy for the first 14 years of her marriage. I can not wait for Autumn Throne, but it will be a long wait!!! Still the first two books are well worth another dozen of so readings!!!!

I've always been more of a Henry fan than Eleanor but the author has succeeded in changing my mind. Here is a woman born to greatness and wealth but who nonetheless experienced the same loss and suffering as the rest of us. While not a saint, here is a woman who makes the best of trying circumstances and survives against the odds.
