The first woman to ask for divorce and lead an army, Eleanor of Aquitaine (1122) lived until she was 82 (pretty good considering most died in their 40s). She got a formal education, which was really rare for women in that era. There are rumours that she poisoned her second husband Henry II’s mistress, the Fair Rosamund.
