Married at 12 to King Henry III of England, Eleanor of Provence is a woman of great beauty and intellect, living in harsh medieval world of war and betrayal. Hated by her English subjects due to the promotion of her family, her barge is pelted by rocks and rotten food hurled from London Bridge. But unruly rioters are not her greatest problem–Simon de Montfort is rising against King Henry, making demands on the royal family that were unheard of in the time. Battle was looming. Would Eleanor’s son, the young Prince Edward, and her husband be able to stand against the barons? Or would Henry be deposed or made a puppet king?
Eleanor’s rarely told story. One of the few English Queens without a marked grave. Best seller in the UK for 6 months in biographical fiction.
