Summary

King Henry II reigns over a vast empire, but he is aging, and his ambitious sons are restless. Henry’s third son, Richard of Aquitaine, is developing a fearsome reputation as a ruthless warrior, and he earns the name Richard Lionheart for his bravery and brutality on the battlefield.

After the deaths of his brothers, Richard’s impatience to take the throne leads him to form an alliance with France. And so Richard begins his bloody quest to return the Holy Land to Christian rule.

too long to get going

it took ages to get anywhere so I gave up narrator didn't read exciting parts as if they were exciting, not like it would have been if I was reading myself, I just couldn't keep going with it
