The name Eleanor is derived from the French form of the Provencal name Alienor. One of the most famous and first users of the name was Eleanor of Aquitaine (12th century). She was named Aenor after her mother, and was called by the Provençal phrase alia Aenor "the other Aenor" in order to distinguish her from her mother.

Eleanor of Aquitaine (Aliénor d’Aquitaine, 1122 - 1204) inherited her father's domain when she succeeded him as suo jure Duchess of Aquitaine and Countess of Poitiers at the age of fifteen. She was Queen to two kings, King Louis VII of France and King Henry II of  England, and the mother of Richard the Lionheart and King John.

Unusual for the time she actively participated in affairs of state during the reigns of both of her husbands and her two sons which became Kings. She even accompanied her husband King Louis VII on the Second Crusade (1147 - 1149).

By virtue of her own wealth and her marriages to both King Louis VII of France and King Henry II of England, Eleanor of Aquitaine was one of the wealthiest and most powerful women in Western Europe during the Middle Ages.
