    Eleanor of Castile (1241 – 28 November 1290) was the 1st queen of Edward I of England. They were devoted to each other and rarely apart. Supposedly Eleanor also saved Edward's life at Acre by sucking his wound. Edward is among the few medieval English kings not known to have had affairs or bastards. The queen was made to wear the king's unpopular mask. It was always safer to blame a foreign-born queen than to criticize a king, and easier to believe he was misled by a meddling wife.
