There are so many mistakes in Bravehart and don't even get me started on Knight's Tale.   lol . 

Henry II was an interesting period in English history.  I have seen the play and the movie verison of Lion in Winter .  Eleanor was an amazing woman. 

Medieval history has been my interest since college.  Most of my history classes were in European history. 

It is a  very interesting period of history .  Violent and Brutral at times.  But amazing people.  One of my favorite books is by Eileen Powers called Medieval People a book about several people who stand out in the time period. 

Alison Weir also has some interesting books on the Little Princes , Eleanor and Elizabeth 1. 

Fast interesting reads are the Uppity Women series Uppy Women in the Middle Ages is one of many.
