Abstract

[The Introduction explains how commercial and financial ties between the Plantagenet kingdom of England and the duchy of Aquitaine in the Late Middle Ages originated in a political union. This was formed by the marriage of the future King Henry II to Eleanor of Aquitaine in 1152, and it continued to the end of the Hundred Years’ War in 1453. Yet the ambiguous status of Anglo-Gascon Aquitaine as neither English nor French has suited the national historical narratives of neither modern Britain nor France, and so it has been generally ignored by historians of both. Nevertheless, extensive evidence survives that can be used to reconstruct a case study showing how certain markets and institutions evolved during this period when rulers increasingly sought to financially exploit trade.]
