Episode Summary

The King
There were three medieval King Richards of England (I, II and III respectively), or so history textbooks tell us. Richard the Lionheart spent most of his life fighting battles and only six months of his 10-year reign in England. Richard II was murdered to prevent a popular uprising against those who deposed him. As for "child murderer" Richard III, his disfigurements were probably inventions. We may not even have a true record of the medieval kings; Terry Jones uncovers evidence of a King Louis.moreless
