Berengaria of Navarre c. 1165–1170 – 23 December 1230) was Queen of England as the wife of King Richard I. She was the eldest daughter of King Sancho VI of Navarre and Sancha of Castile. As is the case with many of the medieval queens consort of the Kingdom of England, relatively little is known of her life. The early 20th Century Cunard passenger liner RMS Berengaria was named in her honour, the first Cunard ship to be named for a British queen.

KING of LEINSTER, Dermot McMurrough, 1110-1171. In Irish history books written after 1800 in the age of nationalism, Diarmait Mac Murchada was often seen as a traitor, but his intention was not to aid an English invasion of Ireland, but rather to use Henry's assistance to become the High King of Ireland himself. He had no way of knowing Henry II's ambitions to take over and create the Lordship of Ireland. Generation 29 on family tree.

Medieval History : Eleanor of Aquitaine (1122-1204) The most powerful woman of the Middle Ages. Queen of France and of England. Mother to three Plantagenet Kings: Henry (the Young King), Richard (the Lionheart) and John (Lackland)
ELEANOR OF AQUITAINE (1137-1152) was one of the most powerful and influential figures of the Middle Ages. Inheriting a vast estate at the age of 15 made her the most sought-after bride of her generation. She would eventually become the queen of France, the queen of England and lead a crusade to the Holy Land. She is also credited with establishing and preserving many of the courtly rituals of chivalry.
Eleanor of Aquitaine, as painted by Kinuko Craft || Never was there a more determined, persistent, strong-willed, and ardent woman in all of history. I admire her immensely. Immensely... She let nothing stand in her way.

The first woman to ask for divorce and lead an army, Eleanor of Aquitaine lived until she was 82 (pretty good considering most died in their 40s). She got a formal education, which was really rare for women in that era. There are rumours that she poisoned her second husband Henry II’s mistress, the Fair Rosamund. This lady’s bad-ass. (Painting by Edmund Blair Leighton)

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.

The Eleanor of Aquitaine Vase or rock crystal vase probably originated in the seventh century and was given to William IX of Aquitaine (the Troubadour) by a Muslim ally. When Eleanor of Aquitaine, William's granddaughter, married King Louis VII of France in 1137, she gave him the rock crystal vase as a wedding present. The inscription on it says he, in turn, gave it to the Abbey of St.-Denis. It is now in the Louvre in Paris and is the only artifact of Eleanor known to exist today.
'The Eleanor of Aquitaine Vase.' It can now be seen on permanent display in the Louvre, the museum having acquired the piece in 1793 after the French Revolution. The object is known to have belonged to Eleanor of Aquitaine, who, having inherited it from her grandfather, William IX, gave it as a wedding gift to her first husband, Louis VII of France. In his turn, he gave it to Abbot Suger for his foundation of St. Denis, who used it as a communion vessel.
