12. I am…

I am the king of England, but also Duke of France.
I have led armies into battle, won wars
but my brother wants my crown for himself.
How dare him, try for my throne.
He wants me gone, but I won’t go
I am, the Lionheart, King Richard the First

Richard I, 1157 to 1199, was king of England and Duke of various parts of France and Lord of others. He was known as ‘the lion heart’ for his reputation as a great military leader. He fought in the Third Crusades and his brother John attempted a rebellion against him. He is the King that Robin Hood is loyal to.
