Eleanor of Provence

Post by Alisha Marie Klapheke » Tue December 28th, 2010, 4:50 am

Okay, lay it on me, fellow lovers of history! What little bits have you picked up about Eleanor of Provence? What was she like? Did she love her husband, Henry III? Or was she simply fulfulling her role as yet another powerful tentacle in her Savoyard family by getting a good spot for some of her clever uncles?

Have you read "Four Queens" by Nancy Gladstone? It was good, but I couldn't tell you anything specific about her as it was the first I've really read about her.
