Good to hear from you.
Yes, that we are

Depends on which country you deal with. If you're dealing with her and Henry II, then there is quite a bit of info in various places...namely court rolls, pipe rolls, catalogues of ancient deeds etc. If you'd like some links to these, I can give them to you. There mightn't be too much in them about Eleanor as an individual, depends on what she was up to at the time. There are also plenty of historical texts written about her by historians and antiquarians such as Alison Weir, Lisa Hilton etc. They supply quite a few other texts and such in their appendices and bibliographies.

I would imagine that there are French records similar to the ones they have kept in England that would be of assistance to you.

Actually, Wikipedia has a very good rundown on her, with quite a few references for you to look at.... Eleanor of Aquitaine

Yes I've seen wikipedia. I'm most interested in the French side and the life also of Alix de France.
How are you descended? From Eleanor and Henry II?

Yes, from Eleanor and Henry II. They're my 27th Great Grandparents

You also know that through her you have a blood link to Brooke Shields and a number of other celebrities

Just one of her famous ancestors. She's also a great grand-daughter of Rollo as well. Henry "The Fowler" is another. Her mother and grandmother were known as very beautiful women, as well as herself.

I don't think that last attribute of hers has made it down to me LOL!
I'm fortunate to have the descent details from her down through the centuries.
Near where I live there is a house /museum which was built in 1781. When I give tours or attend events (I'm on the board of the place) I dress in formal dress from that period and portray one of my ancestors who i know lived during that time and was even my approximate whe in 1781! It's a lot of fun and visitors love the touch of authenticity!

That would be very interesting to go to
I imagine you get a lot of enjoyment out of dressing up in the part

There are different forms of beauty, you know. Eleanor and many of the other girls in the family have the looks, but there are others who also take it to other dimensions. Phillipa of Hainault was a very kind and compassionate lady, liked by everyone...for instance. Some were very intellectual (Eleanor was no slouch when it came to the brains department), such as Leonilla Baryatinskaya and Anna Komnene. There's a painting of Leonilla in the J Paul Getty Museum, in LA. She was 27 at the time. Nice painting, actually. Anna wrote the Alexiad...a biography of her father Alexios Komnenos, the Byzantine Emperor...apart from a number of other works. She was one of the first women historians.

There's much to commend the women in the family, even today.
