Summary Sentence: The Lion in Winter

Full Summary: King Henry is getting old, and he has his fair share of problems. He wants an heir to his throne and his entire kingdom. If he had it his way it would be John, but his wife wants her pet, Richard the Lion Hearted, to take it all.

King Henry is getting old, and he has his fair share of problems. He wants an heir to his throne and his entire kingdom. If he had it his way it would be John, but his wife, who insists on warring with him, wants her pet, Richard the Lion Hearted, to take it all. Henry also must deal with the young king of France, Phillip, who wants either the marriage of his sister (Henry's lover), or the return of her dowry, a piece of land that Henry finds indispensible.

Richard, the eldest, feels entitled to the throne, while John, Henry's favorite, feels his father will win in the end. In the thick of it all is Geoffrey, the middle son, calculating and conniving, trying to find the highest position of power for himself.

All of these powerful characters are thrown together in a castle for Christmas, dedicating themselves to negotiations, deceptions, and power-plays.
