Neither a feckless knight-errant nor a king who neglected his kingdom, King Richard I was in reality a masterful and businesslike ruler, argues John Gillingham in this lively reassesment of Richard the Lionheart's reign. This much revised edition brings the text up-to-date in the light of recent research, adds material on the King's reputation in successive centuries, expands the bibliography, and provides the full scholarly notation the previous edition lacked.
