6 July marks the anniversary of the crowning of Richard I – better known as Richard the Lionheart – as King of England. Before that event in 1189, following the death of his father Henry II, he was already considered a great military leader. Although an iconic figure in British history, he actually spent little time in England: he lived in France and most of his reign was taken up with fighting the Crusades.
