The reign of Richard the Lionheart was one of the most eventful in England's history. The thrid son of Henry II, Richard I devoted his life to defending both his faith and his lands in France; only five months of his ten-year rule were spent in England. An outstanding and courageous soldier, Richard I led his army on a holy quest, a savage and bloody chapter of history known as The Crusades. Featuring extensive reconstructions and dramatised 'eye-witness' reports, this is the story of a born soldier and a mighty king of England.
