DUCHESS OF AQUITAINE--Enjoyable historical fictional account of Eleanor from the time she plots of her marrage to Louis (soon to become King of France) through the crusiade, meeting Henry (to be Henry II of England) and their approaching marriage. Interesting discussion of court life, some about the life of peasants in the 1130 and 40s and the Crusaide of the 1140s led, disastrously, by Louis. Interwoven throughout the exercise of the power of the church and its leadership in all aspects of life, sex to war.
