This 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
homeâ€”in violation of the papal decree protecting all
crusadersâ€”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.
For the five years remaining to him, betrayals,
intrigues, wars, and illness were ever present. So were his
infidelities, perhaps a pattern set by his fatherâ€™s
faithlessness to Eleanor. But the courage, compassion, and
intelligence of this warrior king became the stuff of
legend, and A Kingâ€™s Ransom brings the man and his
world fully and powerfully alive.
