British Museum Lecture:

Eleanor of Aquitaine's Crusade

In this lecture I will examine Eleanor of Aquitaine's experiences during the Second Crusade. Eleanor's participation in this venture, and her scandalous experiences at Antioch, created a glamour around her that remains undimmed and kickstarted the career that would bring her eternal fame.

Please find booking information on the British Museum's website:
