  • Notes 
    • "NOTES: a.k.a.: Richard the Lion Hearted; Reign: 1189-99; When he was aninfant, Richard was betrothed to a daughter of the French king Louis VIIand in 1172 he was given the duchy of Aquitaine in France (his mother'sinheritance). When he became king of England, he set out on the ThirdCrusade with Philip II, king of France (son of Louis VII). The Crusadewas a failure. As king, Richard had chosen able ministers to whom he leftmost matters of administration. Under his rule, however, England sufferedheavy taxation, levied to support his expeditions. Sometimes cruel,sometimes magnanimous, and always courageous, Richard was well versed inthe knightly accomplishments of his age and was also a poet. He was tobecome the hero of many legendary tales."
