Richard the Lionhearted

Here are today's narrations on Richard the Lionhearted:


When Richard became king he went to fight in the Crusades. He joined up with the Duke of Austria and the King of France but Richard began to quarrel with them. Richard didn't reclaim Jerusalem but left because his brother, John, was trying to steal the throne.

And here is his drawing:


A long time ago King Richard I went on the Crusades with the King of France and the Duke of Austria. They quarrled with Richard and went home. Richard never got close to Jerusalem. On his way home Richard was imprisoned by the Duke of Austria. He was found by his friend Blondel. The people of England paid Richard's ransom of 150,000 marks. Richard was killed in a battle over a small French castle.
