Richard I Paperback
Part of the The Yale English Monarchs Series series
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.

Review by john257hopper
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.
