Richard the Lion Heart was a real knight. He fought in the Third Crusade. He fought in a place called Arsouf. He was the commander of his army, which was fighting against the Seljuk Turks. The commander of the opposing army was Saladin. Saladin had a bigger army but Richard wwas smarter and had a bigger heart. He used his wits and courage to beat them, thus earning the title Richard the Lion Heart.
