Product Description:

Gr. 3-6. Gregory finds a near-perfect individual for the Royal Diaries series in Eleanor of Aquitaine and does her subject justice. The story begins in 1136, when Eleanor is a disobedient 13-year-old in her father's ducal palace, and ends in 1137, when she marries and becomes queen of France. In this fictional diary, Eleanor records a wide variety of events and displays myriad emotions while creating an informative backdrop of the social and religious customs of the twelfth century. The characterizations of the lively Eleanor, her protective grandmother, and her troubled father are all convincing within their time and place. The book ends with an epilogue, a historical note, a Capet-Plantagenet family tree, and a list of characters (some historical, some fictional). Illustrations, also grouped at the end, include black-and-white reproductions of period paintings and engravings, photos of places and artefacts, and a map. A rewarding addition to a popular series.
