Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of Henry II of England

Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of Henry II of England. Eleanor (1122-1204) was one of the most powerful figures in 12th century Europe. She married Louis VII of France and accompanied him on the Second Crusade. After Louis became jealous of her and had the marriage annulled, Eleanor married the future Henry II of England in 1152. She bore Henry five sons, two of whom, Richard I and King John, went on to rule England. Henry believed Eleanor to have been involved in her sons rebellion against him in 1173 and had her confined until his death in 1189. She was actively involved in governing the kingdom in Richard I's absence in the Holy Land on the Third Crusade and secured his release from Austria by ransom. She remained politically active during John's reign before retiring to end her days at Fontevrault Abbey

King Richard I (1157-119) at the Battle of Jaffa, 1192.Artist: William Turner Davey

King Richard I (1157-119) at the Battle of Jaffa, 1192. The Battle of Jaffa took place during the Crusades, as one of a series of campaigns between Saladin's army and the forces of King Richard I of England. It was the final battle of the Third Crusade, after which Saladin and King Richard were able to negotiate a truce. Afterwards, although the crusaders never regained possession of Jerusalem, Christian pilgrims were permitted entry into the city, and the crusaders were able to retain control of a sizable strip of land stretching from Acre to Jaffa. Although largely a footnote among the greater events that unfolded during the crusades, it was a decisive encounter, illustrating both the determined spirit of Saladin, and the reckless bravery of Richard. It was the final act before the treaty between Richard and Saladin was concluded and helped anchor the crusader presence in the south, and ensure, at least briefly, the perimeter of the Christian realm in the Holy Land
