The Summer Queen by Elizabeth Chadwick


The Summer Queen is suited to lovers of historical fiction based on real historical figures.  It is the first of a trilogy about Eleanor of Aquitaine and deals with her marriage to King Louis of France (when she was only 13), then to Henry of Normandy up to the point she becomes Queen of England.


It was published 8 years ago and the other books in the trilogy, The Winter Crown and The Autumn Throne are also in print.  I'm looking forward to completing the series.


  1. I am glad you enjoyed this, Carole. I really need to read this author! 😃

  2. I have read books about Eleanor of Aquitaine. What a woman. This sounds interesting. I will have to put that on my wishlist. Thanks for the suggestion.
