Loft's historic trio, released in 1963, 1955, and 1969, respectively, are portraits of royal women. Eleanor is Eleanor of Aquitane, Concubine refers to Anne Boleyn, and King's Pleasure reveals Katherine of Aragon. More than just sitting on their thrones in jewels and finery, these ladies were at the center of much political intrigue, so these are far more than romantic portrayals.
