Henry II, the founder of England’s most successful and longest-ruling dynasty, became the first Plantagenet King of England in 1154 after 20 years of civil war.  But he didn’t come to the throne alone.  He had married the feisty and formidable Eleanor of Aquitaine ten years before and with them the Angevin Empire was born.  Historian, TV presenter and host of the Gone Medieval podcast, Matthew Lewis tells the gripping story of the ultimate medieval power couple examining the impact of their Union of European politics, and the rise and demise of the Angevin Empire which spread from the Northumberland coast to Mediterranean shores.
