Subject: Grandchildren of Eleanor of Aquitaine
Date: 17 Oct 2005 22:30:52 -0700


I've been working on compiling a list of the children and grandchildren
of Eleanor of Aquitaine, the wife and queen successively of Louis VII,
King of France and Henry II, King of England. She bore at least ten
children (and possibly eleven, if Ralph of Diceto is correct). This
list is as complete as my knowledge permits, but I know I am unsure of
exactly how many children were born to her daughter Eleanor, queen of
Castile. Any additions or corrections are, of course, appreciated.

By Louis VII, King of France, Eleanor was mother of:
