The Third Crusade
Taking place at the end of the Third Crusade, scheming and partisan politics, as well as the illness of King Richard the Lionheart, are placing the Crusade in danger. The story centres on the relationship of King Richard of England and Saladin, the Sunni Muslim sultan of Syria. The main characters in the book include many historical figures such as the Scottish knight Kenneth (David of Scotland), Richard I the Lionheart, Saladin, and Edith Plantagenet.
