Historical Military art print of Richard the Lion Heart by world renowned military artist Chris Collingwood.

Death of Richard The Lion heart (Coeur-de-Lion)  Richard of the Lion heart is a type of the Knight errant who has made captive the imagination of posterity. His passion for adventure carried him into many lands and his courage and prowess in ware were so great that a century after his death Saracen mothers stilled the cry of their children by the terror of his name. England it is said, owes him nothing but barren fame and blood-stained laurels. his lust for conquest may have drained the country of its wealth, yet his chief exploit-the Crusade  to free the Holy Sepulchre, had the fervent support of his subjects  and all Christendom like Cromwell, he made the name of England feared and respected aboard. fate surely was in the mood for irony , in an obscure quarrel, the warrior who had faced the hosts of Saladin and had carried the sword and fire though France and had escaped the prison of his enemies sand the plot's by his brother John.  Ever in the need to raise money for war, Richard demanded a treasure that had been found at Chaluz. The owner of the castle, a vassal of Richards enemy, the viscount of Limoges, offered part of the treasure but would not give it all up. This refusal the King, a strict disciplinarian, looked upon it as an act of rebellion. he laid siege to the castle, rejecting all proposals to surrender on terms. The situation of Chaluz 3was strong but the means of defense were small. Richard was riding round the outer wall's to discover a weak point for his assault when a arrow from a long bow struck him in the shoulder. Enraged at this wound the King's men stormed the castle, carried it with sword and lance and hange3d the defenders. the sole survivor was the archer was the archer who had fired the fateful bolt. Him Richard with th4e generosity of a brave soldier, pardoned on his death bed, for the wound being treated by an unskillful surgeon proved fatal. Marchadie, who had not the nobility of soul of his master, caused the archer to be flayed alive. Whatever his faults  as a ruler Richard -Coeur -de Lion will always be one of the most romantic heroes in British history. (text from British Battles 1898)

Richard I (The Lion Heart) During the 3rd Crusade by Chris Collingwood.


Richard I (The Lion Heart) During the 3rd Crusade by Chris Collingwood.

Richard the Lionhearts tactical skills and military training played a substantial role in the capture of Acre in 1191 by the Crusaders. But Richard the Lionheart was ruthless and after the capture of the city he marched 2,700 Muslim soldiers onto the road of Nazareth and in front of the Muslim army positions, had them executed one by one. But Richard the Lionheart was up against a great leader in Saladin and the crusades did not always go his way. After he negotiated the Treaty of Jaffa with Saladin and secured the granting of special rights of travel around Palestine and in Jerusalem for Christian pilgrims, Richard the Lionheart started his journey back to England in 1192. He was shipwrecked, and captured by the German Emperor Henry VI, only being released after a 150,000 mark ransom was paid. This money was raised by taxes in England.
