A King's Ransom
the New York Times-bestselling author of Lionheart
comes the dramatic sequel, telling of the last dangerous years of
Richard, Couer de Lion’s life.
long-anticipated sequel to the national bestseller Lionheart
is a vivid and heart-wrenching story of the last event-filled years
in the life of Richard, Coeur de Lion. Taken captive by the Holy
Roman Emperor while en route home—in violation of the papal decree
protecting all crusaders—he was to spend fifteen months imprisoned,
much of it in the notorious fortress at Trefils, from which few men
ever left alive, while Eleanor of Aquitaine moved heaven and earth
to raise the exorbitant ransom.
