Empress Matilda (Maude) and Queen Eleanor are two fearless queens whose actions helped develop the ideas of queenship in twelfth-century England. History and literature combine to provide contemporary views of these women and attitudes toward the way they wielded their power. To what degree might these historical queens also have affected the depiction of Guinevere during this time period?
