Begins: “Endowed with intelligence, creative energy and a remarkably long life, Eleanor of Aquitaine played a major role in the 12th century, an impressive achievement given that medieval women were considered nothing more than chattel.” Examines the tension between her political involvements and cultural pursuits; a balanced perspective is taken here.

Capellanus A (~1186—1190/1990) The Art of Courtly Love. Columbia University Press: New York.

In The Art of Courtly Love, Andreas Capellanus (Andrew the chaplain) refers to the court of Poitiers. He claimed that several women, including Eleanor and her daughter Marie de Champagne, would sit and listen to the quarrels of lovers and act as a jury to the questions of the court that revolved around acts of romantic love. He records some twenty-one cases, the most famous of them being a problem designated to the woman about whether or not true love can exist in marriage. According to Capellanus, the women decided that it was not at all likely.

Some scholars dispute this (e.g. Weir). They note that the only evidence the courts of love took place is in Andreas Capellanus’s book. They also conclude that it unlikely that this influential court ever existed given the lack of evidence that Marie ever stayed with her mother in Poitiers.

Though Alice is not an Oxford novel as such, the fantasy might paradoxically be considered the Oxford novel, full of donnish humour and playfulness, and Desmond Morris was not the first to observe that it is a “typical Oxford book — light and fantastic but with serious bits of thought embedded in it.” . . . For all its flights of fancy, Alice is firmly rooted in Oxford and in particular in the Christ Church environment of its author and the young girl who inspired him. (p. 127)

p. 128—130: Relates all kinds of Oxford/Christ Church detail that form the basis of Alice in Wonderland. Also talks of royal motif that runs the adventures, particularly Through the Looking Glass.

p. 129: Dodgson’s files of correspondence contained some ninety-eight thousand cross-references

The commonly accepted story [on the founding of Oxford} concerns an eighth-century Saxon princess named Frideswide. . . .  commemorated in a stained-glass window by Edward Burne-Jones (1859) in the Latin Chapel of Christ Church Cathedral. (p. 12)

For medieval Oxford citizens the legend had a powerful and mystical fascination. . . . The mythic element was heightened in some versions of the legend, for Frideswide escapes from Algar (or Ufgar) to found a convent on the site where Christ Church cathedral now stands, around which the town developed. . . .  The story has left its mark on later literature too, for in Alice in Wonderland there is a reference to the well at Binsey from which Fridewide drew the water to bathe her aggressor’s eyes.  . . . Carroll was drawn to use it in his story because Alice Liddell and her sisters, for whom he made up the story, were sometimes take to Binsey by their governess, who had relatives there.

A brief study of three women who exemplified their respective role within tripartite medieval society: those who fight (and thus rule), those who pray, and those who work; Eleanor is exalted as the quintessential ruling woman, along with Heloise (clergy) and Joan of Arc (peasant). This work offers a feminist perspective, stressing that class, or rank, took precedence over gender; consequently, Eleanor is not labeled a feminist. Instead the focus is on shifting power relations between the sexes during the 12th century, emphasizing the rise of courtly love as the primary force driving the realignment in favor of women, especially women as powerful as Eleanor, who was its “undisputed patroness”.

“Most of our English annalists seem to have followed Higden, the monk of Chester, whose account with some enlargements, is thus given by Stow: ‘Rosamond, the fayre daughter of Walter Lord Clifford, concubine to Henry II (poisoned by Queen Elianor, as some thought) dyed at Woodstocke [AD 1177], where king Henry had made for her a house of wonderfulle working; so that no man or woman might come to her, but he that was instructed by the king, or such as were right secret with him touching the matter. This house after some was named Labyrinthus, or Dedalus worke, which was wrought like unto a knot in a garden, called a Maze; but it was commonly aid that lastly the queene came to her by a clue of thridde, or silke, and so dealt with her, that she lived not long after; but when she was dead she was buried at Godstow, in a house of nunnes beside Oxford . . . How the queen gained admittance into Rosamond’s bower is differently related.’ (p. 120)

Raikes AWF (1932) Letter to The Times, 15 January 1932, p. 4.

[Alice Wilson Fox née Raikes] “An incident on 17 August 1868 confirmed Dodgson’s idea of Alice making a journey into Looking-Glass House, the title he was using at this time for the new Alice book. The idea came from a chance meeting with a distant cousin, Alice Raikes, on a visit to Dodgson’s Uncle Skeffington Lutwidge at Onslow Square, London. She lived next door, and Dodgson invited her to “see something rather puzzling”; the effect of holding an orange in the right-hand as viewed in a tall mirror. In her solution to the puzzle, Alice Raikes suggested that if she was on the other side of the mirror, the orange would remain in her right-hand, and not be in the left-hand as shown by her reflection. Dodgson was impressed with her answer. Alice Raikes said, many years later, that this incident gave Dodgson the idea for Looking-Glass.34 The chess-game feature of the book was probably present long before this. Dodgson played chess with Alice Liddell and her sisters many years earlier, and he, no doubt, invented chess-stories to amuse them, which were later included in the book. The chess framework of the story is unconventional, but the moves of the chess pieces are legitimate even though the White side appears to get a number of consecutive moves.“

It had chanced either the day before, or the day before that, that the Planet Saturn had treated me with his usual adversity in the carrying out of a plot with Alice in Wonderland. For, that evening, the Dean and Mrs. Liddell dined by command at Blenheim: but the girls were not commanded; and as I had been complaining of never getting a sight of them lately, after knowing them from the nursery, Alice said that she thought, perhaps, if I would come round after papa and mamma were safe off to Blenheim, Edith and she might give me a cup of tea and a little singing, and Rhoda show me how she was getting on with her drawing and geometry, or the like. And so it was arranged. The night was wild with snow, and no one like to come round to the Deanery after dark. . . . when there was a sudden sense of some stars having been blown out by the wind, round the corner; and then a crushing of the snow outside the house, and a drifting of it inside; and the children all scampered out to see what was wrong, and I followed slowly; — and there were the Dean and Mrs. Liddell standing just in the middle of the hall, and the footmen in consternation, and a silence, . . .

Ruskin J (2010/1903) The Works of John Ruskin. Allen Cook & Wedderburn (reissued by Cambridge University Press: Cambridge).

John Ruskin (1819–1900) changed Victorian perceptions of art and was the main influence behind “Gothic revival” architecture. As a social critic, he argued for the improvement of the condition of the poor, and against the increasing mechanization of work in factories, which he believed was dull and soul-destroying. The thirty-nine volumes of his work, originally published between 1903 and 1912, includes his books and essays. Almost all of his writings are highly illustrated. Some editions also include extracts from letters, articles and reminiscences both by and about Ruskin.

Yalom M (2004) Birth of the Chess Queen: A History, Harper Collins: New York.

Eleanor’s history was interwoven at many levels with the spread of chess in France and England, and with the expansion of the chess queen’s empire. During Eleanor’s lifetime, the queen continued to replace the vizier throughout Europe, so that by the end of her reign there was hardly a sign of the vizier on the European board, except for Spain, where Arabic Chessmen Coexisted with European pieces into the late Middle Ages. It is tempting to assume that Eleanor’s prestige played some role in the popularity of her miniature counterpart. At the least, she epitomized the trappings of queenship that worked their way into the symbolic system on the chessboard. (p. 87)

By the time of Eleanor’s reign in England, the chess queen had clearly entered the literary imagination as a metaphor for wifely behavior at the highest level. For better and worse, these double-edged visions of queen’s behavior reflect medieval attitudes toward women in general (p. 93).

In Eleanor’s lifetime, the names of the chessmen varied not only from one language to the next, but also within Latin (p. 96)

Eleanor of Aquitaine and Blanche of Castile became in their long lifetimes the equals of their husbands and sons, the living models of female strength and grandeur symbolically incarnated in the chess queen (p. 99)
