Richard The Lionheart

He was born in September 1157 at Beaumont Palace. By the age of 16, Richard commanded his own army he launched many rebellions in Poitou against his father, King Henry II.

Richard became King of England from 6 July 1189 until his death on 6th April 1199,

Although there have been many discussions; It still cannot be decided if or if not that Richard was a homosexual. Though it is believed that he probably was, he had no children by Queen Berengaria, with whom his relations seem to have been merely formal, and preferred that of male company.

In the late 1940s John Harvey challenged the silence towards the topic of Richard’s sexuality, causing quite a stir in with many historians.

It is believed that Richard had a homosexual relationship with Phillip II of France, although many historians have tried to deny this as false, however there was a lot of speculation at the time.

There are a lot of quotations and a lot of tales to be told about Richard as well as his many efforts in the crusades and also his affair with Phillip of France.

We both hope that you enjoyed reading this hub and hope that you will continue to follow our series of LGBT Pioneers Of Histiory.


Many Thanks Callum (Calpol25) and Ian (Alian346)

      This hub motivated me to look up Richard the Lionheart. I think he was a cruel man. His saving factor was, he was really handsome.

      I learned something again today. Thank you.

      Voted up and interesting.

      Richard the Lionheart is certainly one of the most interesting characters in our history. I've never liked the idea of the crusades but he must have been brave and seemed to be totally committed to leading his country. Haven't come across another 'team' who write hubs together - do you have the monopoly on this? Good idea to collaborate; two brains are better...etc., eh? Voted up and interesting. All the best. Ann
