It is a life that culminates when her words are set into type, making Julyana Berners the first woman to have her work printed in the English language.

      It is very easy to get started. The great European legends of warriors such as the paladinsthe Matter of France and the Matter of Britain popularized the notion of chivalry among the warrior class. This gripping tale of a queen forced to stand strong in the face of overwhelming odds is at its heart a tender tale of love. In order to keep the lands and ships under Scottish control, Robert the Bruce demands Brochan marry to break the iron-clad will.

      As the centuries passed, this basic theme has never gone out of style, even still popular among men and women alike in more modern stories. Jones shows that behind the popular image of the knight in shining armor lies a world that is both more complex and more fascinating. Though this singular source was found in the 19th century, William Marshal has remained relatively unknown beyond academic circles. But some did, even among the poor. Everyone, that is, except for her dying father, who insists on leaving Eleanor his most valuable provinces—and making her prey to the first baron who rides in to kidnap her.
