The heroic tale of a young boy Richard, the great grandfather of William the Conqueror. After the assassination of his father, he became the duke of Normandy at the tender age of nine. The book, written with young readers in mind, has several gripping moments - when he is taken to the French court by King Louis, his rescue by his loyal squire and return to Normandy. Fascinating!
