Synopsis:

Rare Book

Review:

Offers a synthesis of scholarship as well as fresh assessment of Richard I's life with particular attention to the ethos of high-medieval chivalry. Jean Flori is one of Europe's most highly regarded historians, one of the world's leading medievalists, a recognized scholar of the crusades and probably 'the' expert on the concept of chivalry. -- Jochen Burgtorf, California State University, Fullerton In recent decades there have been a number of more or less popular books on Richard I by French authors, but this is the first by a major scholar, and as such is warmly to be welcomed... His great familiarity with the sources means that in Part Two we have a valuable introduction and guide to recent French literature on the elusive subjects of knighthood and chivalry. -- John Gillingham English Historical Review Offers a synthesis of scholarship as well as fresh assessment of Richard I's life with particular attention to the ethos of high-medieval chivalry.
