Richard the Lionheart
“Richard I”... “Good King Richard”... “Richard Coeur de Lion”, call him what you will, was King of England from 1189 until his death in 1199.

When he became King he led the Third Crusade to the Holy Land after the departure of Philip II of France.

The figure itself is modelled on the famous equestrian statue of King Richard that stands proudly outside the Palace of Westminster in London opposite Westminster Abbey. Last December, when K&C attended the ‘London Show’ myself and the K&C team saw this statue for the first time and all agreed it would make a fine ‘Royal’ addition to the ‘Crusader & Saracen’ series.
