Who was Leonor of Aquitaine?

She was a French nobleman medieval household member of Poitiers, who became Queen consort of France and, after her divorce from Louis VII, Queen of England to marry Henry II

Eleanor of Aquitaine is the figure chosen by the Spanish scientific Ana Rodriguez to study the relationship of women to power in medieval timesand the conclusions are published in “La estirpe de Leonor de Aquitania” (“The lineage of Eleanor of Aquitaine”) (Publisher: Crítica).

She was mistress County Aquitaine, strategic location between France and England that remains at the center of political decision and relations between the two countries, which negotiated for six decades.

This woman crossed the Pyrenees at age 80 and travelled to Palencia (Castile) to choose Blanca between her granddaughters (the daughters of Alfonso VIII), who was wife of Louis VIII and mother of King St. Louis IX, and one of the queens more famous and skiful in France.

Eleanor of Aquitaine was an “exceptional”, long-lived and “fascinating” woman, loved by some and hated by others, but for all arguably the best example of the important power that some women exercised in the Middle Ages, contrary to popular belief, said author of the book to EFE.
