The first woman to ask for divorce and lead an army, Eleanor of Aquitaine lived until she was 82 (pretty good considering most died in their 40s). She got a formal education, which was really rare for women in that era. There are rumours that she poisoned her second husband Henry II’s mistress, the Fair Rosamund.
This lady’s bad-ass.
Epic woman in a time when Western world was the biggest shit in moral and technological development compared with the rest of the world = EPICWIN.
That’s reason I’m happy of now women can get a formal education.
