Are there any covers similar to the US edition of Lionheart?
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Lady B, that haircut is a bit severe and modern, the Binns cover is better, but hair should be shorter. Something between the two would be about right. Richard's tomb effigy, which I don't have a photo of to hand, was supposedly designed by his mother - or at least she had a hand in it, so the hair on that is more like the ticket. If you google Richard I and images, his Fontevraud tomb comes up. I don't think SKP's cover has a beard either.

Dunno but I suspect that's not a great idea either...

Hee. She might take up the challenge if anyone else had claimed to be ... :D

I love vintage covers. The medieval-mod version of Godwin's Memory of Lions is of of my favorites ever ... but I have to admit, it was the blonde in green with the gorgeous Saxon that sold me my first copy. I need that cover again, heh.

Not sure if this one's been posted here and too lazy to go back through the threads. Free today on Kindle. Cromwell era.

Interesting wardrobe on that model for Cromwellian times.
