The Book:

Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of France and England, Mother of Empires

Sara Cockerill has produced the best biography of Eleanor ever written...

In this thorough and immersive biography, Cockerill returns to original sources to assess which claims made about the formidable monarch have a solid basis in fact. Illuminating and absorbing, this is a startlingly accomplished piece of work.
