Lady Rowena -
King Richard -
Prince John -
Ivanhoe returns from the Crusades to discover that the corrupt Prince John has captured his good King Richard the Lionheart. With the help of his beloved Lady Rowena and his loyal allies Ivanhoe decides to rid himself of the formidable enemy. He will stop at nothing to recover his possessions - stolen by Prince John - and his honor.
And yet, as the embodiment of the medieval code of chivalry, Ivanhoe always wages fair and often one-to-one combat. Ivanhoe will have to battle oppression and injustice to ease the lot of the people before King Richard can return!
Ivanhoe the King's Knight familiarizes us with the Middle Ages of Europe, their knights in armour, caparisoned horeses and dazzling tournaments. We also discover this part of history through the extranagant jesters, the joyous brigands and the richly-costumed ladies.
