Publisher's Summary

The Most Powerful Queen

It goes without saying that Eleanor of Aquitaine was a force of nature. She was the wife of kings, the mother of kings, a duchess in her own right, and a tool of no man. She was headstrong and independent in an age when women were essentially to be seen and not heard.
 

Inside you'll hear about
 

  • Childhood in Aquitaine
  • Conflict
  • Penitent Crusade
  • A New Kingdom
  • Rebellion, Ransom and Retribution
  • Palace Politics
  • The Third Crusade
  • Ransom
  • Sunset

And much more!

Eleanor’s life was as extraordinary as the times in which she lived, and in many ways she was the most modern woman in medieval France. The book tells you about bright events of the lives of her husbands and sons, who left a mark in the history of Europe.
