Ooh, I must read this! I always love the descriptions of how much luggage Eleanor of Aquitaine took with her :-) . And the story about Eleanor of Castile sucking poison out of Edward's wound, even though spoilsports say it isn't true.

Almost all modern Europeans are descended from Eleanor of Aquitaine, I think she's one of the most interesting historical women of all time. The Crusades are also among the most interesting eras in human history politically, economically, religiously, and geopolitically.
