Item Description
The Aquitaine sundial combines science and a bit of historical romance. The result is this replica of the one that
Eleanor of Aquitaine presented to King Henry II of England.

Eleanor of Aquitaine married Louis IV of France in 1137 shortly before his ascension to the throne. She bore him
two daughters. That marriage was annulled in 1152 when her husband questioned her fidelity.

Historical legend tells of the sundial Eleanor gave to Henry Plantagenet (King Henry II) of England in that same
year. In response, he had one made for Eleanor that was inlaid with diamonds. It was engraved with the words Carpe Diem (Sieze the Day).

Eleanor and Henry were married in 1152. There were three daughters and five sons borne of this marriage. These
two marriages provided spark and fuel for a long term struggle between England and France.

It is packaged in a clear envelope with a 30 inch black silk cord and 4 color booklet containing instructions
historical and educational information.
