London: Richard Lionheart, Snow

Richard I (8 September 1157 – 6 April 1199) was King of England from 6 July 1189 until his death.

He was known as Cœur de Lion, or Richard the Lionheart, even before his accession, because of his reputation as a great military leader and warrior.

His statue, by Carlo Marochetti, stands outside the Palace of Westminster.
