Eleanor...young, high-spirited, supremely intelligent, heiress to the vast Duchy of Aquitaine - at a time when a woman's value was measured in terms of wealth. Her vivid leadership inspired and dazzled those about her. And yet, born to rule, she was continually repressed and threatened by the men who overshadowed her life.

This is the story of a brilliant, medieval figure - of a princess who led her own knights to the Crusades, who was bride to two kings and mother of Richard the Lionheart. It is the rich, incredible story of Eleanor of Aquitaine.

    " For some reason I really could not finish this book, no matter how hard I tried. Usually I like Lofts but 'Eleanor' was a miss for me. "

    " This book makes me want to read more about Eleanor. It was very much a history, with some narrative thrown in along the way. The author glosses over several years in just a few sentences, so it can be difficult to get a good sense of character and story progression. "

    " I enjoyed this historical novel about Eleanor of Aquitaine. It reminded me of the movie, the Lion in Winter. It's one of my favorite movies. "

    " I acquiered this book from my mom's library years ago. I picked it up to read after seeing the new Robin Hood movie. It's a good, quick read that refreshed my love of early English/French history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 1/26/2012

    " A very enjoyable bok. Eleanor is portrayed as a strong woman who tries to be independent, unfortunately, being an heiress did not stop her becoming at the mercy of the men in her lives. She was treated in a bad way, and not shown the respect that she deserved. "

    " I was introduced to a historical figure I knew nothing about, which I enjoyed, but I wasn't overly impressed by the writing. Too many times I found myself researching historical moments because I sensed a bias toward the main character. "

    " This book really whet my appetite for more on Eleanor. What happened next? Gotta find out! "

    " I enjoyed this book very much. I thought the story telling was exceptionally vivid, in addition to being very accurate.
    Eleanor was such an amazing woman! From the crusades of her youth to her 15 year imprisonment as an old woman, her life was fascinating. "
