Abstract

The high point of medieval history encompasses the time of the Third Crusade, focusing on two prominent men: Richard I, or Richard the Lion-Heart, and his younger brother John. Both men would rule as king of England within the span of seventeen years, but they would cement for themselves different reputations in history. Richard I and his brother John were men with power that had very distinctive personalities.

Summary of research results to be presented

Thesis:

By sharing the same throne at different times, historians can analyze their military achievements in and out of Europe, the various laws and policies issued during their reign, and their striking personalities that gave them parallel reputations. Richard is often given a better reputation due to his military achievements, even though John was a more present sovereign.
