The year is 1183. Like many a modern-day politician, Britain’s King Henry II finds it occasionally useful to take his wife out of mothballs and parade her before the public. Henry’s Queen Eleanor, long exiled to a faraway castle, is ‘invited’ to join Henry and their three sons for a family reunion. In this way, Henry hopes to maintain a stronghold on his empire and prevent the balance of power from shifting to Eleanor or one of his sons: Richard the Lionheart, Prince Geoffrey, or Prince John. Also on hand for the get-together is Henry’s young mistress Princess Alais who happens to be betrothed to his son Richard – and the Princess’s brother, King Philip of France. Chaos reigns!
