"Margaret Howell has written a supremely good book ... in its broad and humane sympathies, as well as in its contribution to political history, this is a book that could hardly have been better done." Times Literary Supplement
"Howell s reassessment of Eleanor s role in 13th-century politics and her approach to the study of queenship make this impressively researched work of import to scholars. Her readable and primarily narrative style should nonetheless appeal to a wider audience." Times Higher Education Supplement
"Howell s study of one of England s most long-lived queens is thoroughly delightful, engaging, and grounded in impressive scholarship." Choice
"A scholarly and very readable biography" American Historical Review
"In this deeply researched and well-written work, Howell gives, in telling detail, the life of the queen and her place in the larger events of her time ... Above all, given that counselors played as large a part as they did in Henry s reign, Howell has written a compelling and illuminating account of one counselor who has been too often overlooked, Henry s Queen."
