The Life and Times of Richard the Lionheart

Richard I, king of England from 1189 to 1199, was a brilliant soldier and military strategist. His fierceness in battle during the Third Crusade won him the title of Coeur de Lion, or Lionheart. Even his most formidable enemy, Saladin, respected Richard and feared his army. Saladins own emirs were terrified of the warrior they called Malek Rik. For decades following Richards crusade, Muslim mothers called upon his name to frighten their children into behaving.

Despite his legendary heart of a lion in battle, he was honorable and generous as a kingat least for a king of his time. Richard the Lionheart was a king, a warrior, a hero, and a legend in his own time.
