Why read it?

1 author picked Eleanor of Aquitaine as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This may not be the most scholarly book on this extraordinary woman; but it is by far the most readable on the only woman who married both a King of France and King of England, went on Crusade to Jerusalem, and civilized feudalism by sponsoring poets and minstrels and creating the idea of romantic love.

From Martin's list on Perigord France.
