The Lion in Winter by James Goldman

In 1183 Henry II releases his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine from prison and calls for his sons Richard, John, and Geoffrey to join them at their Castle in Chinon for a family Christmas. Young King Philip is insisting his sister Alais now marries John as agreed years before, or else he wants her dowry, the lands of the Vexen, back. Trouble is, she is Henry's current mistress. As Eleanor has already gifted the province of Aquitaine to her favorite, Richard, the outcome of this may decide the very future of England. Everyone except the pawn Alais are masters of double-dealing and deception, which makes for a very livelyYuletide.
