1) Ivanhoe

Author: Walter Scott

Ivanhoe is a historical novel that deals with one of the first and most acclaimed works of the genre. Written in 1820 and set in medieval England, more precisely during the twelfth century, the protagonist of the action is Wilfred of Ivanhoe, a young and valiant knight.

Ivanhoe is the story of one of the noble Saxon families at a time when the nobility in England was overwhelmingly Norman. The novel follows the Saxon protagonist, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe, who has fallen out of favor with his father for his loyalty to the Norman king Richard the Lionheart.

The story is set in 1194, after the failed Third Crusade, when many of the crusaders were still returning home to Europe. King Richard, who had been captured by Leopold of Austria on his return journey to England, was believed to still be in captivity.

Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

At the age of twenty, young Alleyne, son of Edric, leaves the Catholic abbey where he was raised, intelligent, skilled and beloved, yet sheltered and naive, and goes out to see the world, according to the terms of his father’s will.

On the same day, the abbot expels John from Hordle for worldly behavior: great appetite, teasing and flirting. They meet at the Pied Merlin Inn while resting each night.
