"Deserves to be regarded as definitive, and . . . will surely find its way on to the shelves of every student of the period. As befits the magnificence of his subject, Gillingham is a truly great historian."—Nicholas Vincent, Times Literary Supplement "There is enough violence and intrigue to appeal to any reader; one wonders why Richard's life has not been made into a movie. The book should appeal to any reader, and its mastery will be obligatory for any serious student of the period. . . . A splendid book."—Fred A. Cazel Jr., History: Reviews of New Books "An authoritative reading of Richard and his times . . . with a lively and engaging style that makes the book highly readable. The result is medieval political history at its best."—Scott L. Waugh, Albion "In John Gillingham, Richard I has found his most able biographer. This is a tremendous book and a great read compellingly written." —S. D. Church, English Historical Review
