In her own time, Eleanor de Montfort (d. 1275) was one of the most important women in England.

As the sister of King Henry III, the aunt of the Lord Edward (the future King Edward I) and wife of the baronial leader Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester, Eleanor's familial relations straddled the conflict between Henry III and his barons which was known as the Second Barons War.

Drawing on the contents of Eleanor's household roll for 1265 (British Library, Additional MS 8877), Prof. Wilkinson assesses Eleanor's role in these remarkable events, the pressures which were placed upon her domestic establishment during this pivotal period in English history, and the fates of those who supported her as the events of 1265 played out.
