Richard I, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

Neither a feckless knight-errant nor a king who neglected his kingdom, Richard I was in reality a masterful and businesslike ruler.

In this wholly rewritten version of a classic account of the reign of Richard The Lionheart, John Gillingham scrutinizes the reasons for the King's fluctuating reputation over successive centuries and provides a convincing new interpretation of the significance of the reign.

This edition includes a complete annotation and expanded bibliography.

An extremely well researched biography in which the author uses a range of sources, English, French and Middle Eastern. At times, the torrent of detail slows down the narrative somewhat, but this is an excellent, balanced and judicious account.
