Richard the Lionheart Swords
The traditional image of Richard the Lionheart, the second Plantagenet king of England, has come to us through the centuries as a glorious crusader and knight. Captured by the Austrian emperor, he was later rescued by the young troubadour Blondel who discovered Richard when singing a famous ballad. Richard was called Lionheart at the beginning of the Third Crusade when Philip of France was compared with a lion. He convinced his officers in Winchester, around the "Round Table," of having belonged to King Arthur's legend and having the magic sword "Excalibur." Richard was a generous knight and a wise politician, but above all a great soldier. His own personal ability was a source of great inspiration for his men in battle.
