Richard Removing the Archduke's Banner

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

During one of King Richard the Lion-Heart’s crusades the city of Acre was taken over and a prince, Leopold, Duke of Austria, set up his banner on the walls. Richard did not think it ought to be there: he pulled it up and threw it down into the ditch, asking the duke how he durst take the honors of a king.
