King Richard I of England and King Richard IV of Normandy, Duke of Aquitaine, Duke of Gascony, Count of Maine, Count of Nantes and Overlord of Brittany, 1157-1199.Some historians claim that he was nicknamed the Lionheart long before he became king, because at age only 16 he was already head of a huge army and fearless in battle. Other historians claim that Lionheart was a name attributed to him in legend, long after he died. As is the way with so many heroic figures there is a lot of myth…
