Ivanhoe, a trusted ally of Richard-the-Lionhearted, returns from the Crusades to reclaim the inheritance his father denied him. Ivanhoe defends Rebecca, a vibrant, beautiful Jewish woman, against a charge of witchcraft - but it is Lady Rowena who is Ivanhoe's true love.
The wicked Prince John plots to usurp England's throne, but two of the most popular heroes in all of English literature, Richard-the-Lionhearted and the well-loved famous outlaw, Robin Hood, team up to defeat the Normans and regain the castle.
The success of this novel lies with Scott's skillful blend of historic reality, chivalric romance, and high adventure.
