There were 2 separate discussion threads several days ago recommending HF on Eleanor of Aquitaine. That prompted me to put together a list. In the event you're still interested, see Historical Fiction on Eleanor of Aquitaine. Please feel free to suggest titles I may have missed.

Thanks, Genie.  I was one of those looking for more books to read about this most interesting lady!

Genie, you are the best!  Thank you.  I have an ARC of Devil's Brood.  I'm glad to see that you recommend it.  I think I'll read it next, although it will be awhile before I finish the auto bio of Henry VIII.  Thanks again for the list.

Glad to see you included The Serpent's Tale, Genie! I just finished reading it.

The novel centers on the murder of Rosamund Clifford, Henry II's mistress. Eleanor is the prime suspect.

I remember your review, Felicia. It's what made me think of the title when I created the list. :)
