Imagine your face being seen and admired everyday for over 800 years
She’s my favourite heroine of history, Eleanor of Aquitaine. She married twice, to two kings!
First the King of France at the age of 15, then at the age of 30 when he was more interested in being monk like than in her. She married Henry 11, King of England three weeks after the divorce! That’s my girl, don’t waste any time.
I’ve followed her story throughout my Camino and in Bordeaux Cathedral there was a nice surprise. Eleanor’s regal face staring at me 800 years later.
