Richard I, also called Richard the Lion Hearted, was King of England during part of the Crusades. He married his queen, Berengaria, in 1191, while he and his troops were on the island of Cyprus.
Then Richard left on a Crusade to the Holy Land. His queen spent the rest of her life in Palestine, Italy, and France, and never once set foot in England!
Richard himself rarely saw England. He spent only about six months of his ten-year reign in the nation that he ruled!
