Amy Kelly's story of the queen's long life is a modern biography that brings together more authentic information about her than has ever been assembled and reveals in Eleanor a greatness of vision, an intelligence, and a political sagacity that have been missed by those who have dwelt on her caprice and frivolity.

This complex biography of this woman who was queen of France, and then queen of England in the 12th century covers much of the history of Europe in that period: the kings, the wars, the crusades, her sons who rose to power. I learned more of the complicated relationship of her husband Henry II and Thomas Becket.

This is an extremely well written -- the term lyrical has been used and is appropriate -- and thorough history of Elenore and the kings of France and England, particularly Henry II and his sons, in the 12th and early 13th century.
