Welcome to the world of fiction and intrigue. We all know in detail about the Norman/French / Plantagenets/Angevin king's life and exploits. But then ofcourse is always another twist, presenting the imagination, medieval romanticism and fairy tailish ambitions of

In it the author goes to length to depict her own angle on things surrounding the French/Norman King life and exploits.
She mentions a mysterious King , who imprisons Richard the Lionheart, on his way back from the 3rd Crusade, although in reality
we have 2 Kings involved in the deed - Leopold V of Austria and Henry VI of the Holy Roman Empire.
