Eleanor: Crown Jewel of Aquitaine Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Eleanor: Crown Jewel of Aquitaine

Fourteen-year-old Eleanor is the oldest daughter of the Duke of Aquitaine, one of the most powerful men in France in 1136. Her father's only legitimate son died as a young child, leaving Eleanor, the oldest of his two daughters, next in line to inherit his lands, which are larger than those controlled by the King of France. Eleanor knows that because of her position, she will be married off in a strategic alliance. But what she would like is to marry for love, something that's completely impossible. Eleanor records the experiences of her life as a noble girl in Medieval France in a diary given to her by her grandmother. She talks about wondering what her future will be like, her relationship with her sister, her thoughts on who she might marry, and what life was like back then for the rich.
