Renowned for her highly acclaimed and best-selling British
histories, Alison Weir has in recent years made a major impact on
the fiction scene with her novels about Queen Elizabeth and Lady
Jane Grey. In this latest offering, she imagines the world of
Eleanor of Aquitaine, the beautiful twelfth-century woman who was
queen of France until she abandoned her royal husband for the
younger man who would become king of England. In a relationship
based on lust and a mutual desire for great power, Henry II and
Eleanor took over the English throne in 1154, thus beginning one of
the most influential reigns and tumultuous royal marriages in all
of history. In this novel, Weir uses her extensive knowledge to
paint a most vivid portrait of this fascinating woman.
