Summary
"Richard Lionheart towers over the Middle Ages. He has traditionally been viewed as a warrior king, a model of kingly and knightly virtues. Yet his internal financial reforms were as important as his overseas campaigns." "This book eschews a purely biographical approach, examining instead the various parts of Richard's vast Angevin empire and their governments, using original French as well as English sources. While the king's greatness as a military commander is demonstrated, especially in relation to the Capetian challenge, his skills as politician and administrator are also highlighted."--Jacket
