Character description

Eleanor of Aquitaine (1122-1204), Duchess of Aquitaine in her own right and Queen Consort successively of France and England, was probably the most powerful woman in Europe in the Middle Ages. She was sole heiress to the largest, wealthiest region of what is now France. She married first King Louis VII of France and then left him for Henry II of England. She had 10 children (among them Richard I, "the Lionheart") and exerted political influence to the end of her life.
