Review: Captive Queen: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine

Captive Queen: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine
Captive Queen: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine by Alison Weir
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read a few books on Eleanor of Aquitaine, mostly covering her later years married to Henry the second, so it was refreshing to read some of the early history as it might have been in her day. Alison really brings her to life and captures the environment she lived in well. We will never know what this fascinating woman was really like, but this is a good guess!
