Divorcing a King – Eleanor of Aquitaine #1 – Extra History

This entertaining video, perhaps inadvertently, shows how wrong the feminist historical narrative is. Points to watch out for:

  • Eleanor’s father left his lands to her
  • Eleanor had a good education and spoke Latin
  • King Louis went out of his way to please his wife Eleanor
  • Eleanor wasn’t afraid to speak her mind
  • Eleanor clashed with senior church officials
  • Eleanor was able to influence her husband the King
  • Eleanor led her own troops on crusade
  • Eleanor sought an annulment to her marriage and later received a divorce
  • Eleanor retained her own lands and titles after the divorce
