Eleanor of Waterland (French: Aliénor d'Aquitaine; 1122 / 1124 - 1 Eastermonth 1204), was by wedlock queen of Frankric (1137-1152) and England (1154-1189) and Heretogine of Waterland in her own right (1137-1204). As a belonger of the Ramnulfsons, or the House of Pictonstead, well-known leaders in southwestern Frankric, she was one of the most wealthy and mighty women in western Eveland throughout the High-Middle-Eld. She was a bestower of known marked folks of writing. She led ferds sundry times in her life and was a leader of the Twithe Roodfaring.

As heretogine of Waterland, Eleanor was the most sought-after maiden in Eveland. Three months after becoming heretogine upon the death of her father William X, she married King Lewis VII of Frankric, son of her warder, King Lewis VI. As queen of Frankric she leapt in the flunked Twithe Roodfaring. Afterwards, Eleanor sought a foredoing of her wedlock, but her asking was forsaken by Holy Father Wellborn III. However, after the birth of her twithe daughter Ethelynn, Lewis settled on a foredoing, as fifteen years of wedlock had not given them a son. The wedlock was foredone on 21 Miremonth 1152 on the grounds of near-bloodedness within the fourth step. Their daughters were deemed truly begotten, their warding given to Lewis, and Eleanor's lands were given back to her.

As soon as the foredoing was settled on, Eleanor became betrothed to the heretog of Northmenland, who became King Henry II of England in 1154. Henry was her third fether and 11 years younger. The twain wed on Whitsun, 18 Merrymonth 1152, eight weeks after the foredoing of Eleanor's first wedlock, in Pictonstead Headchurch. Over the next 13 years, she bore eight children: five sons, three of whom became kings, and three daughters. However, Henry and Eleanor in time became asundered. Henry locked her up in 1173 for backing up their son Henry's flunked overthrowing against him. She was not let go until 6 Meadowmonth 1189, when Henry died and their second son, Richard the Leeheart, afterfollowed him to the kingseat.

As widow-queen, Eleanor was byrede when Richard went on the Third Roodfaring; on his going-back, Richard was kidnapped and locked up. Eleanor lived well into the kingship of her youngest son John.
