Courtly Love-Eleanor of Aquitaine is credited with the introduction of 'courtly love' to France and later England. Courtly Love was meant to be platonic, romantic 'courtship', by a man, of a Lady, (not his wife) whose social position was above his own. An unattainable Lover. This romantic play was an accepted part of Court life. Evidence of this sort of play was, sadly, used against Anne Boleyn.
