Eleanor has more than fulfilled her duty as Queen of England-she has given her husband, Henry II, heirs to the throne and has proven herself as a mother and ruler. But Eleanor needs more than to be a bearer of children and a deputy; she needs command of the throne. As her children grow older, and her relationship with Henry suffers from scandal and infidelity, Eleanor realizes the power she seeks won't be given willingly. She must take it for herself. But even a queen must face the consequences of treason.

The relationship between Alienor and Henry II is one of the most fascinating in history. Chadwick brilliantly writes and inteprets the subtle changes within their marriage. The best scenes of the book are when these two are engaging one another, either in spite or passion.
