Note: The game is based on an old legend which has inspired many poems and ballads. There may be no historical truth in the story, though certainly King Henry II, Queen Eleanor and Rosamond Clifford all lived in the 12th century. Rumours may have been spread to discredit Queen Eleanor for political reasons.
