A King's Ransom

A King's Ransom

Audiobook CD - 2014
Rate this:
Taken captive by the Holy Roman Emperor while en route home--in violation of the papal decree protecting all crusaders--Richard, Couer de Lion 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 father's faithlessness to Eleanor. But the courage, compassion, and intelligence of this warrior king became the stuff of legend.
