From the Paper:

"Richard I was the son of two of the most interesting and formidable royal characters of medieval history. The marriage of his parents, Henry of Anjou and Eleanor of Aquitaine brought together an empire that included not only England, but half of France as well. Richard was the third son born to this union and as such did not expect to inherit his father's crown. Unfortunately, both of his older siblings died, leaving Richard in a position of contention for the throne with his two younger brothers. This paper will examine and discuss the life of Richard I and the events that caused him to be regarded as one of the strongest military Kings of medieval England."
