The traditional image of Richard the Lion-heart, the second Plantagenet king of England, has come to us through the centuries as a glorious crusader and kinght. Captured by the austrian emperor, he was later rescued by the young troubadour Blondel who discovered Richard when singing a famous ballade.
Richard was called Lionheart at the beginning of the Third Crusade when Philip of France was compared with a lamb and Richard with a Lion. He convinced his officers in Winchester, around the "Round Table" of having belonged to king Arthur's legend and having the magic sword "Excalibur".
Richard was a generous knight and a wise politician, but above all a great soldier. His own personal ability was a source of inspiration for his men in battle.
