AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Deamer describes the 12th century Courts of Love of England, France and Holland. The courts were presided over by a prominent woman, one being Eleanor, the wife of England's Henry II. Judgements were called for in issues such as the quality of love between lovers, as opposed to that between married couples, the length of time a lover could absent him or herself, and matters of gentlemanly discretion.
