In this new account of Richard the Lionheart's reign, John Gillingham scrutinizes 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. This paperback edition includes an updated bibliography.
