Overview

The Autumn Throne: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine by Elizabeth Chadwick

The Son She Loved. The Betrayal She Faced. The Legend She Became.

The stunning conclusion to the Eleanor of Aquitaine trilogy

Imprisoned by her husband. Separated from her children. If King Henry II thought these things would push his queen into submission, he was wrong. Eleanor of Aquitaine refused to give into his tyranny. Freed by his death, she became dowager Queen of England. But the competition for land and power that Henry bred among his sons had grown into a dangerous rivalry that Eleanor must skillfully control. Eleanor would need every ounce of courage and fortitude as she crossed the Alps in winter to bring her son Richard his bride, ransom him from imprisonment and deal with his brother John's treachery. Her indomitable spirit would be tested to its limits as she attempted to keep the peace between her warring sons,fend off enemies, andnegotiate a magnificent future for a chosen granddaughter.

Elizabeth Chadwick's storytelling brings to life the exciting, ever-changing events of the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine. From the first book in the trilogy until the last page in the series, the story unfolds in such detail that you feel that you are experiencing each moment yourself.

I read every historical fiction about Eleanor of Aquiline that I can get my hands on ... Elizabeth Chadwick's Eleanor Trilogy has been the absolute best. I will re-read all three books in very near future so I can enjoy them in quick succession. This time around I devoured each book individually then waited impatiently till the next book was released. An exceptional read.

Very few authors are able to bring to life from the middle ages as well as Elizabeth Chadwick can. She has a gift for creating deep understanding of her character's thoughts, desires, and motivations. Years of meticulous research into all aspects of medieval life allows the author to enrich the reader's experience through minute details and rich descriptions regarding everyday medieval life, not only of the nobles, but of all social ranks of the time. The Autumn Throne is the concluding book in the trilogy of Eleanor of Aquitaine. Although you do not necessarily have to read the first two to understand the third book, I preferred to read the entire series to get a well-rounded view of Eleanor of Aquitaine's life.
