  • Notes 
    • The daughter of Raymond Berengar, count of Provence, she was married to
      Henry in 1236. She was a vigorous and incisive woman and had much
      influence on her husband, as did her unpopular relatives and other
      foreign courtiers who followed her to England. During the ascendancy of
      Simon de Montfort in 1264-65, Eleanor raised mercenaries in France for
      her husband's cause. She was dispatched to a convent in 1286 but was
      sometimes consulted by her son, Edward I. [6]
