Richard I was King of England from 6 July 1189 until his death. He was known as Richard the Lionheart because of his reputation ass a great military leader and warrior. Richard was a central Christian commander during the Third Crusade, leading the campaign after the departure of Philip II of France and scoring considerable victories against his Muslim counterpart, Saladin. Rather than regarding his kingdom as a responsibility requiring his presence as ruler, Richard has been perceived as preferring to use it merely as a source of revenue to support his armies. Nevertheless, he was seen as a pious hero by his subjects. He remains one of the few kings of England remembered by his epithet, rather than regnal number, and is an enduring iconic figure both in England and in France
