5.0 étoiles sur 5 Marion Meade brings Eleanor back to Life! 25 juillet 2014

I am almost finished reading this biography, and I have truly enjoyed it. Unlike other authors who actually write historical biographies versus historical fiction, the author, Marion Meade, actually makes Eleanor come to life, using what little researched facts available to her. Most other biographical authors of medieval women, because so little is documented about even famous women of those days, make the person seem so flat and impersonal. Ms. Meade actually brings Eleanor to life without adding fictional components. I will read more from this author in the future.

There are a lot of biographies about Eleanor to choose from. This one is very thorough and very well written. For the amount of well-researched real history it is never really boring, and actually quite entertaining. Meade seems to know her period well and her subject even better. A great read for anyone interested in Medieval history and a very powerful woman in a time when women didn't have much power or many rights.

This was an interesting read and little is actually known of Eleanor 'A...women at this time were rarely mentioned as compared to the men in history. I found the book to be more factual than any i have read so far. She did not take too much liberty in making Eleanor a fantasy. I find that the dialogue is sometimes put in to make for an interesting read. This book was smooth and practical and made some interesting thoughts considering what should have been a powerful woman for her time. Probably many mysteries about the real Eleanor that we will never know, but this was a helpful insight.

Although I have been acquainted with a turbulent life of this amasing woman in fits and starts by reading different other historical books (fiction and non-fiction), by far this book surpasses them in richness of detailes and thorough approach. Account of Eleanor's life starts with her ancestors, follows her happy cloudless childhood, sudden marriage to King Louis of France, her relations in this ill-matched union, participation in crusade, divorce, dazzling marriage to Henry II Plantagenet, her genious of administration and support of chivalry culture, birth of numerous "eaglets" and accounts of their lives, describes the cooling down of matrimonial passion, exile, return to glory with the rule of Richard the Lion Heart and disentegration of vast Plantagenet domains at John Lackland's rule after Eleanor's death. It is not a dry account of facts, but engrossing multicolored mosaic of names, feelings, deeds, customs and reasons. In her times a woman could be noted either by being a saint or too scandalous: Eleanor was neither, but worth while being remembered after 800 years. Although I must add that one can feel at once that the author is a woman and that the book was written in the 70s, when feministic movement was in its height and we just started to re-discover anew the role of women in history. However, now, 20 years later, after reading this book, no one would disagree, that the author overpraised her heroine - Eleanor of Aquitaine well deserves remembrance and admiration.

I loved this book--she makes the middle ages come alive--Eleanor becomes real, and the resonances with our modern era shine through--the seeds of modern literature and politics were sewn during her life, in no small part because of Eleanor's energy and perseverance. Read it and become immersed in the life and times of this remarkable woman.
