  • Title: Eleanor of Aquitaine and the Troubadours [The author looks at evidence of Eleanor's connections to troubadours. Despite some modern historians' optimistic constructions of Eleanor and her court as a haven for troubadours, there is virtually no documentation of troubadours either in her entourage or writing songs for her.
