Set against the brilliant backdrop of the 12th century renaissance, Eleanor of Aquitaine makes her dramatic entrance into history. Twice a queen, mother of two kings, an incomparable woman of her day, she was both ultimate sex symbol and astute politician, whose adventurous and exciting life remains unequaled by any queen before or since. For England and France it was a time of treacherous struggle between church and state, when the obsession to crusade was at it's height, the quest for justice led to our common law, and the concept of Romantic Love was born and immortalized in the songs and tales of the troubadours of Aquitaine.
