Richmond Library: Introduction to The Crusades

Thursday 15th April 2021

Jean Gorman is the well known author of the Lionheart Chronicles, historical novels set during the reign of King Richard the Lionheart - a time of crusades, devious international politics and warfare.

In this fascinating talk, Jean shares her knowledge of The Crusades.

“Was it an age of knights and chivalry? An age when self-serving, powerful and sociopathic men had free rein? Was this different from today? Why did King Richard the Lionheart command the respect and devotion of his men, whereas his brother, King John became the butt of stories like Robin Hood? Can we believe what we are told of these men? Probably not - deeds define the man”, says Jean.

If you are interested in history then this talk is for you.

It’s free and everyone is welcome.

This event will only take place if we are at Level 1.
