At the age of thirty-two, Richard the Lionheart has finally succeeded Henry II to the English throne. And, against his father's wishes, he intends to make Berengaria, daughter of the King of Navarre, his Queen.
But first he must fulfil his vow to his country to win back Jerusalem for the Christian world.
