RICHARD THE LIONHEART: A Tale of Bravery, Crusades, and Captivity (British Royalty)
You may be familiar with the legendary figure of King Richard the Lionheart, often depicted as the virtuous ruler in tales of Robin Hood. However, how well do you truly understand this 12th-century monarch of England? Do you know the reasons behind his departure from England or his subsequent capture by another ruler while returning? Were you aware that Richard had siblings other than the notorious Prince John? Perhaps you've heard stories of Richard not only as an absent king but also as a fearless leader who charged into battle alongside his knights.

Within these pages, you'll delve into the authentic narrative of King Richard, a ruler who may not have fit the conventional image of "goodness," but was undeniably courageous, charming, and adventurous-a historical figure whose tale deserves remembrance.

Explore an array of topics, including Richard's journey from Aquitaine to the English throne, the onset of his crusade, his travels to Palestine, naval battles, and sieges, his period of captivity, the final years of his reign, and many more!
