Eleanor of Aquitaine
A loving mother. A betrayed wife. A queen beyond compare.

Eleanor of Aquitaine's story is legendary. She is an icon who has fascinated readers for over eight hundred years. But the real Eleanor remains elusive - until now. Based on the most up-to-date research, bestselling novelist Elizabeth Chadwick brings Eleanor's magnificent story to life, as never before.

Young, vibrant, privileged, Eleanor's future is golden as the heiress to wealthy Aquitaine. But when her beloved father dies suddenly in the summer of 1137, her childhood ends abruptly. Forced to marry the young prince Louis of France, Eleanor is still struggling to adjust to her new role when Louis' father dies and they become King and Queen of France. Leaving everything behind, the vivacious Eleanor must face the complex and faction-riddled French court. She is only 13.

Overflowing with scandal, politics, sex, triumphs and tragedies, The Summer Queen is the first novel in a stunning trilogy from award-winning and much-loved author Elizabeth Chadwick

The next two books - The Winter Crown and The Autumn Throne - are available to buy NOW in paperback and ebook.

Elizabeth Chadwick does it again!

Maintaining her brilliant storytelling and vivid, colourful style, Ailenor of Aquitaine is brought to life. I couldn't put it down. This is why Elizabeth is my favourite author and cannot write fast enough for me! Can't wait for the sequels.

Beautifully written

Overall I enjoyed the book although at times i found it a little boring. However the author certainly knows how to capture the moment. If you like descriptive stories I suggest you read it.
