Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations of the graphic novel create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. Opening pages provide historical context about the Angevin Empire - the vast lands owned by Richard's family in England and France; the fuedal system operating in Europe at the time; the code of chivalry for all Christian knights; the pilgrimages to the Holy City of Jerusalem; and Richard's early life. Closing pages explain what became of Richard's empire after his death during the reign of his brother King John I. There is also a glossary, index, and recommended further reading. This work supports Key Stage 2 History providing an insight into 'significant people, events and places in the past.' It helps achieve the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
