I came across a YA novel about Eleanor on her Wikipedia page that sounds interesting called A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver by E. L. Konigsburg whose most notable work is probably From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler about two kids running away to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The description caught my fancy and my library owns it, so next time I get over to the library, I may get it. Has anyone read it? Here's the description of the novel from Eleanor's Wikipedia page:
"A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver takes place in Heaven of the late 20th century, where Eleanor of Aquitaine, Empress Matilda, and William the Marshall are waiting for King Henry II to be admitted to eternity at last. The Abbot Suger stops to chat with Eleanor and stays to wait, too. To pass the time, the four recall Eleanor's time on Earth. The flashbacks on earth are set during the Middle Ages in France and England, with a brief trip to the Holy Land. The flashbacks trace the highlights of Eleanor's life from 1137 (when she is 15 years old and about to wed Louis Capet, soon to be King Louis VII of France) to her death in 1204. Her life encompasses the rule of England by her husband Henry II and by her sons Richard and John. Originally published in 1973, the novel was put back in print by Atheneum in 2001."
