Marriages Between French and English Royalty



Throughout history from the Norman Conquest to the late 17th century, France rather than Germany was the focus of English foreign policy. In order to avoid wars and cement alliances, albeit temporary, many marriages were contracted between English and French royalty during that time. This article chronicles the experiences and fates of the French princesses who married into the English royal family, from Eleanor of Aquitaine in 1152 to Henrietta Maria of France in 1625.

Very interesting and informative. I enjoyed it very much. Amazing what kind of influence some of these women had on the monarchy and how young they were.

Before King Henry III married Eleanor of Provence, he had previously been engaged to Joan, the heiress to the county of Ponthieu in France. The French court had objected to the prospect of an an English sovereign marrying into a county on the northern French coast. The marriage alliance fell apart.
