Aliénor of Aquitaine was one of the first and most active patrons of Provencal poetry. Known as Aliénor "until David Hume vandalized her name into 'Eleanor'," this Queen.of France, along with her children, spread a love of poetry and music to many provinces in France. French poets followed her across the English Channel when she became Queen of England and introduced their art to the English Court.
