As a female Medievalist who studies both literature and history, I could not help but admire the amazing woman that was called Eleanor of Aquitaine. I have studied her life and influence over a long period, and have labeled her as ‘one of the most important women of the 12th Century.’ She became the duchess of a large French estate – Aquitaine – at the tender age of 13, was Queen Consort of two countries – first France at 15 and then England at 30, she went on Crusade with her first husband Louis VII, she became the mother to King Richard the Lionheart and King John – two of the most popular kings in British history, she became Queen Regent upon her second husband Henry II’s death, and is known by scholars for her patronage of the literary arts. 47 more words
