The Lion by the Ant Was Slain. A Guest Post by Richard Willis
Today I am very happy to welcome Richard Willis, the historian and friend of mine, to the blog. Richard has kindly decided to share his thoughts on the passing of Richard I the Lionheart, Henry the Young King’s illustrious younger brother and famous crusader king. The latter died on 6 April 1199 at Châlus. For centuries the circumstances of his death have been the subject of heated debates.
Over to you, Richard!
