Eleanor de Montfort: a rebel countess in Medieval England
Wilkinson, L. 2012. Eleanor de Montfort: a rebel countess in Medieval England. London Continuum.
In her own day, Eleanor de Montfort was one of the most important women within the English realm. As the daughter of King John, sister of King Henry III, and an aunt of the future King Edward I, Eleanor occupied a place at the heart of politics during one of the most turbulent periods in English history, the period of baronial reform and rebellion (1258-67). This book is the first full-scale biography of Eleanor for more than one hundred and fifty years. It draws on a wealth of information in contemporary records, including Eleanor's household accounts for 1265, to provide an intimate portrait of Eleanor as a wife, mother, politician and lord.
