I'm rather fond of Queen Eleanor's Confession, which isn't entirely historically accurate, but is based on the story of Henry II, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, and his mistress "Fair" Rosamund Clifford.

This ballad is also mentioned in Hardy's novel Return of the Native, which is how I came to research it.
