Richard the Lionheart faces an impossible choice between true love and the crown, in this historical action epic starring Lord of the Rings’ John Rhys-Davies.
Days away from his coronation, a secret meeting with the woman he loves turns into a life and death fight for survival for the future King of England, Richard the Lionheart. Ambushed by hired mercenaries, and with the identity of the man who ordered his murder a mystery, Richard is left with no allies he can trust. Standing alone as civil war looms, with his kingdom on the brink of chaos, the young prince is forced to face not only his enemies but the harsh responsibilities of leadership. Will he choose to fight for his crown, or his love for a commoner?
