This woman dominated her century (the 1100s). She became the queen of France and later the queen of England. Two of her four sons became Kings of England. She and her husband (Henry II) did not get along, and yet they had a huge impact on their time and subsequent events. The story of the murder of the Archbishop of Canterbury is one of the controversial events. Come and hear their stories.
