Somebody somewhere (I don't know who) has noticed that Eleanor of Aquitaine had been brought up in a refined court filled with music, poetry, fine table manners, fashion and things of that kind. And that consequently she introduced these things to the courts of both her husbands, the French and English/Anglo-Norman kings.

The problem is that, apparently, Bad King John, one of Eleanor's many sons ate like a pig (a habit that finally killed him.) So, my question is, if his mother was such a dainty thing with so many enormous gifts of introducing culture to royalty, why was John such an ape?
