‘No matter how bestial and obdurate a man might be, that woman could bend him to her will.’ To which individual does this description, written by medieval chronicler Richard of Devizes, refer to?’

Answer: Eleanor of Aquitaine. Eleanor was the queen of two kings, the mother of two more, and her resilience and unshakable will made her legendary across Europe.
