Power of a Woman. Memoirs of a turbulent life: Eleanor of Aquitaine

Power of a Woman:
Married first to the King of France and then the King of England, Eleanor of Aquitaine was probably the most powerful woman during the Middle Ages.

Robert Fripp brings the woman to life as she 'dictates her memoirs' after 80 years of life; recalling wars, intrigues, her travels, troubadours and ruthless diplomacy while confessing her loves, hopes for her children and their fates.
