Lionheart, Paperback / softback Book

Lionheart Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Richard I was crowned King in 1189 and set off almost immediately for the Third Crusade.

This was a bloody campaign to regain the Holy Land, marked by warfare among the Christians and extraordinary campaigns against the Saracens.

Men and women found themselves facing new sorts of challenges and facing an uncertain future.

John, the youngest son, was left behind - and with Richard gone, he was free to conspire with the French king to steal his brother's throne. Overshadowing the battlefields that stretched to Jerusalem and beyond were the personalities of two great adversaries: Richard and Saladin.

They quickly took the measure of each other in both war and diplomacy.

The result was mutual admiration: a profound acknowledgement of a worthy opponent.

In Lionheart, a gripping narrative of passion, intrigue, battle and deceit, Sharon Penman reveals a true and complex Richard - a man remarkable for his power and intelligence, his keen grasp of warfare and his concern for the safety of his men, who followed him against all odds.
