Eleanor of Aquitaine, a Rebel of the Middle Ages

Alienor

On 11/08/2015, France 2 TV produced a biographic film 90 minutes long, Secrets d’Histoire: Aliénor d’Aquitaine, une rebelle au Moyen Age – (Secrets of History Eleanor of Aquitaine, a Rebel of the Middle Age.) A good command of French helps in watch of the replay, but then wasn’t Eleanor more French than the French? The film covers details, depicting both Eleanor’s passionate qualities as well as her stature as told by many historians, curators, partly portrayed, and reenacted.

It panders to many of the myths of her long life, misses a few salient elements like her crusade experience, though it does introduce first viewers to her cast of characters. Nice to see that the world is hungry to hear of her life.
