Ivanhoe has never been superseded as the epitome of chivalric novels. The brave knight comes from the Crusades to claim the Anglo-Saxon princess, Rowena, as his bride. But he becomes caught up in the feud between Prince John and his brother, Richard the Lionheart, who has returned to England incognito. Robin Hood and his outlaws also appear in a story with many interconnecting strands which meet in powerful scenes of tournaments, sieges and courtly love.
