Inured King Ricard


Ricard had been impugned as an ineffectual, withdrawn model of a prince, yet the burning rage in his eyes gave the soldiers pause. He stood amidst the rubble of the throne room before his father, slain by dark creatures. Picking up a tattered flag of his kingdom and the royal sword, he pledged to assume the command of the army and lead the citizenry. His fearful nature had perished with the king.


Name originEdit

Ricard is a Catalan and French masculine name of Germanic origin; the meaning is "powerful ruler, powerful ruler; brave power". A two-element name, it is derived from the elements ric meaning "rich, powerful, ruler" and hart "brave, hardy". A variant of English, French, German, Czech, Dutch name Richard.

Richard was borne by three kings of England including Richard I (1157–1199), a central Christian leader of the Third Crusade in the 12th century, also known as Richard the Lionheart for his reputation as a great military leader and warrior. By the age of 16, he had taken command of his own army, putting down rebellions in Poitou against his father, King Henry II of England.
