A New York Times Bestseller
This is the stunning story of a great medieval warrior-king‚ the accomplished and controversial son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine: Richard‚ Coeur de Lion. It is also the story of another strong-willed man: Saladin‚ a Sunni Muslim born in Mesopotamia who became the Sultan of Egypt in 1174‚ the leader of the Saracen forces that conquered huge portions of North Africa and the Middle East before his face-off with Richard the Lionheart during the Third Crusade.
“[Penman’s] reputation for character-driven‚ solidly detailed historicals is richly deserved.”
