    You go, Grandmother!

    Eleanor: married to two kings, mother of even more kings and queens. A ruler in her own right before she allied with Kings Louis and Henry (well, it was she who made Henry, Duke of Anjou, into King of England). A feminist. A world traveler. Possessed genius intellect. Patroness of the arts. This book was packed with well-researched and incredibly juicy information about my direct ancestress, Eleanor of Aquitaine. If even one percent of her DNA is contained in mine, I'd be surprised but proud. Eleanor was an incredible human being for any age, much less 900 years ago. The author has brought Eleanor to life from household bookkeeping journals and royal annals, sculpture, an 'analysis' of Eleanor's temperament based on her ancestors and her descendants, and other historical accounts. The book is a history, but it reads almost like a novel. Thanks, Ms. Meade, for your careful research and lively writing style. And thanks to your extensive background on Eleanor's family, I was able to augment my genealogy chart by several generations on both sides of Eleanor's parents! A lovely bonus.
