The career of Eleanor of Aquitaine, from heiress and wife to crusader and Queen, seems unmatched in the Middle Ages. But, was her life, generally written in the (often critical) voice of monkish authors, and in changing historical contexts, really unique? We will look at her career and at those of her lesser known peers.
