Richard I Lionheart is handed over as a prisoner by Leopold V, Duke of Austria to Henry VI, Holy Roman Emperor. The ransom demanded by Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI in exchange for releasing Richard will be two to three times a year's income for Richard.

His mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine, must work hard to raise it by imposing 25% taxes on all property.
