Richard I Paperback
Part of the The Yale English Monarchs Series series
In this new account of Richard the Lionheart's reign, John Gillingham scrutinises the king's fluctuating reputation over the centuries and provides a convincing revised interpretation.
Neither a feckless knight-errant nor a neglectful king, Richard I was in reality a masterful and businesslike ruler.

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.
