CAPTIVE QUEEN A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine

by | Read by Rosalyn Landor

Historical Fiction • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

In the twelfth century, women, no matter how intelligent or rich, were dependent on their husbands for life, purpose, and power. Eleanor of Aquitaine chafed at these restrictions and became one of the most powerful and famous women of any age, setting the stage for European alliances for generations. Weir focuses her novel on the end of her marriage to King Louis VII of France and her tumultuous union with King Henry II of England. Rosalyn Landor narrates with a regal tone. Her careful, well-paced delivery allows listeners to immerse themselves in this epic tale of love, lust, conspiracy, and cunning as it weaves history and imagination into a seamless tapestry.
