Fair Rosamond. This beautiful and accomplished lady, the beloved of Henry II., is supposed to have been murdered by Queen Eleanor in a fit of jealousy. History, however, contradicts this romantic story, and asserts that after her parting with the King at Medley Weir, she retired to the Convent at Godstow, where she subsequently died a natural death, her body being interred before the alter.
