  • Notes 
    • Her first husband, King Louis VII divorced Eleanor because she bore him no male children. Eleanor was a patron of the arts andmany of the best of all troubadours came to her court inPoitiers to sing of the queen's beauty and grace.
      Shortly there after, she married King Henry II (a pre-arrangedmarriage). He was afraid of her even though he admired her, so he imprisoned her for many years until his death.
      Eleanor was Queen of two countries and mother to two kings. Eventhough women in the Middle Ages had little if any power, Eleanor had a lot of political power
