Publisher's Summary

You might have heard of King Richard the Lionhearted, the “good king” in the tales of Robin Hood. But what do you really know about this 12th-century ruler of England? Do you know why he left England, or why he was taken prisoner by another sovereign as he tried to return? Did you know Richard had other brothers besides the famed scoundrel, Prince John? Have you heard tales of Richard not only as a missing king but as a leader who rode boldly into battle alongside his knights?

You will learn about....

  • From Aquitaine to King of England
  • Beginnings of a crusade
  • The way to Palestine
  • Sea battles and sieges
  • A captive king
  • The last five years
  • And much more!

In this audiobook, you’ll learn the actual story of King Richard, a king who may not have been exactly "good", but was certainly brave, charismatic, and dashing - a historical character with a story to remember.

No better than Wikipedia

In fact, probably worse. This gave a little personal information about Richard, didn’t give the fax in an organized order and all in all I think either read his biography or look up the basic facts on Wikipedia. William Irvine is an excellent reader however, I recommend him for anything he ever reads.
