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.

About the Author

Sir Walter Scott was a renowned Scottish novelist, poet, and historical figure whose literary contributions left an indelible mark on the 19th-century literary landscape. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, he was educated in law at the University of Edinburgh and pursued a successful legal career while nurturing his passion for literature. Scott's early literary works, including the poetry collection "The Lay of the Last Minstrel" and the historical novel "Waverley," quickly gained popularity for their vivid portrayal of Scotland's history and landscapes.
