Rich'ard [Lat. RICHAR'DUS ; It. RICARDO, re-kaR'do]
[., King of England, surnamed CCEUR DE LION, (kUR
deh le'ON',) was the third or second son of Henry II.
and his queen Eleanor. He was born at Oxford in
1157, and was invested in the duchy of Guienne. He
united with his brother Henry in a revolt against his
"ather in 1173. On the death of Prince Henry, in 1183,
Richard became the heir-apparent to the throne. He
brmed in :i88 a secret alliance with Philip, King of
France, the enemy of Henry II., and openly revolted
against the latter in 1189: The allies waged war with
success against Henry in France, and induced him to
accept their terms of peace. At this juncture Henry
died, in July, 1189. Richard showed compunction for
his undutiful conduct, and chose for his ministers the
faithful servants of his father. Having agreed a short
time before his accession to join the King of France in
a crusade, he appointed his mother regent of the king-
dom. "Impelled more by the love of military glory
than by superstition," says Hume, " he acted from the
beginning of his reign as if the sole purpose of his
government had been the relief of the Holy Land and
the recovery of Jerusalem from the Saracens."

The combined army of Richard and Philip, amounting
to 100,000 men, began to march in 1190. They em-
barked on ships at Marseilles and Genoa, and sailed to
Sicily, where they passed the winter, during which serious
dissensions arose between Richard and Philip, who re-
garded each other withjealous rivalry. Richard married
Berengaria, Princess of*Navarre, at Cyprus, in 1191, and
in the summer of that year arrived at Acre, which had
been besieged by the crusaders for two years and was
still defended by Saladin. The French and English
kings were incited by emulation to extraordinary acts
of valour at this siege. " Richard in particular, says
Hume, "animated with a more precipitate courage than
Philip, . . . acquired a great and splendid reputation."
Acre surrendered in July, 1191, soon after which Philip
returned to France. In September, Richard defeated
Saladin in a great battle, in which " he performed," says
Hume, "the part both of a consummate general and
gallant soldier."

Having concluded a truce with Saladin for three years,
three months, three weeks, and three days, he sailed
homeward in October, 1192, and was wrecked on the
coast of Istria. Attempting to pass through Germany
in disguise, he was arrested by Leopold of Austria, who
transferred him to the emperor, Henry VI., who wis an
enemy of the captive prince. He was confined in a
dungeon, and subjected to many insults, until February,
1194, when he obtained his liberation by paying a large
ransom. In the mean time his brother John had at-
tempted to usurp the royal power, but was resisted with
success. The rivalry between Richard and Philip after
wards involved them in several wars, the results of which
were insignificant Hostilities were suspended in 1 198
by a truce of five years. At the siege of the castle of
one of his vassals near Limoges, Richard was mortally
wounded by an arrow, in March, 1 199. He left no lawful
issue, and was succeeded by his brother John. " Of an
impetuous and vehement spirit," says Hume, "he was
distinguished by all the good as well as the bad qualities
incident to that character : he was open, frank, generous,
sincere, and brave ; he was revengeful, domineering,
ambitious, haughty, and cruel." Richard I. forms a
prominent and brilliant character in Scott's novel of
" Ivanhoe."

RICHARD



Richard H, King of England, born at Bordeaux in
1366, was a sou of Edward the Black Prince. He suc-
ceeded his grandfather, Edward III., in June, 1377.
Among the remarkable events which occurred during
his minority was the rebellion of Wat Tyler, (1381,)
which was provoked partly by the tax imposed to sup-
port a war against France. The insurgents, who were
peasants or common people, entered London, massacred
many persons of the higher class, among whom was the
Archbishop of Canterbury, and committed other out-
rages. Richard acted with much presence of mind, and
persuaded the rioters to disperse. A great number of
them were afterwards executed. Edward III. had left
the kingdom involved in wars against the French and
the Scotch. In 1385 Richard invaded Scotland and
reduced to ashes Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee, etc. The
Scots offered no resistance, but at the same time made
a successful raid into England. The power of Richard,
who was indolent and incapable, was nullified for a time
by his uncle the Duke of Gloucester, who put to death
the king's favourites and mirtisters in 1388. The wars
against France and Scotland were conducted with little
vigour, and suspended by frequent truces. In 1396
Richard concluded a long truce with the French court,
and was affianced to Isabella of France, who was seven
years of age. In 1398 he banished the Dukes of Here-
ford and Norfolk, who had met to fight a duel. Here-
ford (who at the death of his father became Henry, Duke
of Lancaster) had gained the favour of the people by his
conduct and abilities. Taking advantage of the absence
of Richard, who was in Ireland, Henry landed in Eng-
land in July, 1399, raised a large army, and made him-
self master of the kingdom without serious opposition.
The troops which Richard brought from Ireland nearly
all deserted. " His personal character had brought him
into contempt," says Hume. He was deposed by Par-
liament, which recognized his rival as King Henry IV.,
and ordered or advised that Richard should be impris-
oned in some secret place. He died mysteriously in the
thirty-fourth year of his age. "* It is more probable,"
says Hume, " that he was starved to death in prison."
He left no posterity. Richard IL gives name to one of
Shakspeare's tragedies.

See J. EVESHAM, "Histqria Richardi II.," 1719: HUME, " His-
tory of England," chap. xvii. : "Life and Reigp of Richard II.."
London, 1681 ; R. HOWARD, " History of the Reigns of Edward III.
and Richard II.," 1690.

Richard TTT, King of England, a younger son of
Richard, Duke of York, and a brother of Edward IV.,
was born in Northamptonshire on the zd of October,
1452, and was styled the Duke of Gloucester. He took
part in the battle of Tewksbury, in 1471, and, according
to a report which obtained currency, was instrumental
in the death of Henry VI. In 1472 he married Lady
Anne Nevil, a daughter of the Earl of Warwick. He
became regent or protector at the accession of his
nephew, Edward V., who was a minor, (April, 1483.)
" His exorbitant ambition," says Hume, " unrestrained
by any principle either of justice or humanity, made him
carry his views to the possession of the crown itself."
By dissimulation and professions of loyalty he obtained
possession of the king's person. He arrested and exe-
cuted the Earl of Rivers, Edward's maternal uncle and
tutor, with other friends of the young king. About the
end of June, 1483, he usurped the royal power openly
and without resistance. Soon after this date Edward
V. and his brother were put to death in the Tower by
the order of Richard. His authority was recognized by
a Parliament which met in 1484. "But the crimes of
Richard were so horrid and so shocking to humanity
that the natural sentiments of men, without any political
or public views, were sufficient to render his government
unstable." (Hume.) Many nobles and malcontents as-
sembled in Brittany and offered their services to Henry,
Earl of Richmond, who was regarded by the Lancas-
trians as the rightful heir to the crown. Henry landed
at Milford Haven in August, 1485, with a small army,
which was increased to 6000 men. The rivals met at
Bosworth on the 2ist of August In number of men
Richard had the advantage ; but, soon after the battle
began. Lord Stanley, whose conduct had been equivocal,



joined Richmond with about 7000 men and decided the
victory. Richard fought with the energy of despair,
and was slain as he was rushing forward to attack Henrv
in person. Richard was of small stature, humpbacked",
and had a disagreeable countenance. Several modern
writers have appeared as his apologists. Richard IIL
furnishes the name to one of Shakspeare's most popular
dramas.
