Eleanor of Castille was the wife of King Edward I. In 1270 Edward and Eleanor left to join his uncle Louis IX of France on the Eighth Crusade. Louis died at Carthage before they arrived, however, and after they spent the winter in Sicily, the couple went on to Acre in Palestine, where they arrived in May 1271.
Eleanor gave birth to a daughter, known as "Joanna of Acre" for her birthplace.
This beautiful image was used in an issue of Princess comic and later used again in an annual. The original painting was created in the mid 1960s. Professionally matted ready for framing.
