Customer Review

on 26 September 2005
This fascinating biography tells the true story of a formidable, mediaeval woman who liked to live life to the full. Eleanor, Duchess of Aquitaine in her own right, was married twice - first to Louis VII of France, then to the future Henry II of England who was, at that time, embroiled in civil war against his usurping cousin King Stephen.
Eleanor was a much-travelled woman, journeying to the Holy Land, Rome, England, Spain and various countries in between.
She also had ten children, including Richard the Lion Heart and King John, and rebelled against her husband, Henry, in favour of their sons, spending several years under house arrest as a result.
I knew nothing about Eleanor before I read this, but, typical of Alison Weir's writing, this is a gripping tale that I just couldn't put down.
