Cate Blanchett as Elizabeth in ‘Elizabeth’ (1998).

Eleanor of Aquitaine is one of my absolute favourites. She lived to the incredible age of 82, outliving 8 out of 9 of her children; lived through the reigns and helped three kings to rule while they were out of the country. She was beautiful and brave and knew her own mind. Also my name is Eleanor so I couldn’t help but include her in this set of images!
