Henry II & Eleanor of Aquitaine | The Medieval Power Couple With Matthew Lewis

Past Loves - A History Of The Greatest Love Stories

Welcome back to the next episode of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week I am joined by author Matthew Lewis to discuss the fascinating and sprawling relationship between Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Eleanor of Aquitaine had already lived an extraordinary medieval life before she ever met Henry II when she was thrust into the role of French Queen at an early age. But when her marriage was annulled, and her future prospects precarious, there was only one man that she wanted to marry. Henry II was lively, successful and soon to claim his rights as the next King of England. He was everything her first husband Louis had failed to be. Together they would build a vast empire that stretched from Northumberland to the Mediterranean, creating a large family at the same time. But could it last?Eleanor and Henry were the power couple of their age and their love story is, therefore, sensationally dramatic.Where To Find UsShop Matt's book Henry II & Eleanor Aquitaine: Founding An Empire: https://www.amberley-books.com/henry-ii-and-eleanor-of-aquitaine.htmlFind more from Matt: http://mattlewisauthor.com/Follow Matt on Twitter: https://twitter.com/MattLewisAuthorJoin the Past Loves newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/d293dd27393a/past-loves-newsletterFollow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/ If Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com
