The Marriage of Catherine of Valois and Henry V of England in 1420
Eleanor of Provence, wife to Henry III as depicted in the Muniment Room at Westminster Abbey. Eleanor (c. 1223 – 24/25 June 1291) was Queen consort of England from 1236 until Henry's death in 1272. Although she was completely devoted to her husband, and staunchly defended him against the rebel Simon de Montfort, she was hated by Londoners.
