Event Details

Eleanor of Aquitaine and her four successors – England’s first five Plantagenet Queens – played a role in some of the most dramatic events in our history. Crusading queens, rebel queens, learned queens, seductresses, fighting queens, these determined women often broke through medieval restrictions to exercise power and influence, for good and sometimes ill. Bestselling historian Alison Weir tells the enthralling story of Eleanor of Aquitaine, wife of Henry II, Berengaria of Navarre, queen of Richard the Lionheart, Isabella of Angouleme, queen of King John, Alienor of Provence, queen of Henry III and Eleanor of Castile, wife of Edward I. She provides a fresh perspective on a dramatic period of high romance and low politics, with determined women at its heart
