#onthisday in 1189 Richard the Lionheart was crowned as King Richard I of England at #Westminster. As the 3rd son of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitane, he was King for 10 years, but #didyouknow that he also held the title of Duke of Normandy, Aquitaine and Gascony, Lord of Cyprus, Count of Poitiers, Anjou, Maine, and Nantes, and Overlord of Brittany at various times during the same period?! And that he only spent about 6 months in England as King?! He spent most of his adult life in France and spent a lot of time Crusading, not to mention conquering Sicily and Cyprus. This is an image of his royal seal #history #englishkings #kingrichardI #richardthelionheart #monarchy
