It was not a happy union - no son was forthcoming, although Eleanor had two daughters with him, and eventually they divorced, allowing Eleanor to marry Henry II of England with whom she had several children, including Richard the Lionheart and King John (of Magna Carta fame). Henry had some "issues" with Eleanor which led to him keeping her prisoner for many years - in fact for one whole year no-one knew where she was - but she was freed by King Richard following Henry's death.
I've vastly truncated this story so that it isn't spoiled for those of you who have not yet heard Wyn's talk, however I will tell you that after her eventful life, Eleanor died at the age of (about) 82 whilst peacefully living as a nun at Fontevraud Abbey in the Loire Valley. She was buried there alongside Henry and their tombs can still be seen - Eleanor is depicted reading a book to show that she was an educated woman.
Wyn then showed us several pieces of work that she had completed using the buildings connected with Eleanor for inspiration.
This is a large piece depicting a column with its carved stone capital.
