Jousts, kidnappings, duels to the death, a mysterious Black Knight and the gallant outlaw Robin of Locksley all add zest to this timeless tale of medieval romance and adventure. It is the dark days of King Richard's reign, when the beloved king is fighting in far-off lands, leaving his corrupt brother John in charge of his kingdom. Tensions between Saxon and Norman lords erupt in bouts of bloodshed or foul play; good men are banished, forced to turn outlaw and serve the true king in secrecy and disguise. In this dangerous world, the brave Wilfred of Ivanhoe must grapple with the claims of family, crown, truth and justice if he is ever to win the hand of his true love, the beautiful Lady Rowena.

Ivanhoe, son of Cedric, of Saxon birth, loves Rowena, who traces her descent to King Alfred, and who returns his love. Cedric, who is devoted to the restoration of the Saxon line to the throne of England sees the chance of effecting this in the marriage of Rowena to Athelstane and banishes Ivanhoe.Review:
- "When Sir Walter Scott, a solicitor by trade, produced "Ivanhoe" in 1791, he invented the historical novel. This great romantic tale of peril and rescue, chivalry and pagentry created a genre." --"Scotsman"
