Wow, this is one scary family. Eleanor of Aquitain's boys all fighting one another, no trust between them and they all want the Crown of England. This book made fantastic reading, bringing this era vividly to life. Brother No1 Henry died leaving his remaining brothers to fight it out between them. And this they did but with no love lost between them. You just need to read this great book to get the feel of their constant fighting against each other and looking over their shoulders all the time. Eleanor was one ruthless lady who wanted it all for her favourite son Richard. I shall read this book again in time as I enjoyed it so much.
