Here is a first edition of ‘Eleanor The Queen’ by Norah Lofts, the story of the most famous woman of the Middle Ages. Published by Doubleday & Company Inc 1955.

Eleanor the Queen is a novel of the life of the woman who was queen of England and France and mother to men of legend. It is a simply written book and made for a pleasant day’s reading. The story surrounding Eleanor of Aquitaine is one that is fantastic and hard to believe that it is based on some historical fact. What Norah Lofts did so well with her character is not only weave this brilliant woman into all the tales surrounding her, but she made Eleanor a strong and intelligent woman in the process. This book did not deal with court intrigue, there were no secret meetings with lovers. Mostly it dealt with Eleanor’s frustrations trying to communicate with the men in her life and her difficulty at being taken seriously.

Eleanor of Aquitaine was the married to the King of England and mother to King Richard the Lionheart, this book took place during the 12th century during the time when the crusades were popular. She was also the mother of the King during time of the legend of Robin Hood.

This book is in very good vintage condition, the dust jacket shows light ware, a bit dirty on the back, underneath the dj the cloth book is almost mint, there is no writing or marks inside the book and the binding is tight.
