Abstract:

In early June 1191, the crusading army of Richard the Lionheart of England at last faced the Muslim forces led by Saladin, garrisoned in the fortress of Acre on the coast of what was then the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Lionhearts is a parallel biography of two of the greatest figures of the twelfth century. In alternating chapters, Regan presents the early years and rise to absolute authority of each man, while outlining the geopolitics of the medieval era in Europe and the Middle East. Gradually, Regan brings Richard and Saladin, and their allies, together on the battlefield in a conflict that, for all its astonishing fervor, gained neither man outright victory.
