I am currently reading The Canterbury Tales and have to create a resource book. One of the items I need is pictures(if possible) of where Queen Eleanor lived. Even the names of the castles would be helpful. I have searched and wound up here. Thanks for any help that can be given.

One of the favorite places where Eleanor lived was Palais de L'Ombrière in Bordeaux

You can find some info (in French) about this castle on http://www.idhbb.org/fr-page1.1.omb.htm

An other castle where she lived with King Henry II is the castle of Chinon in the Loire region", one of the largest of the region:
