King Richard I of England, commonly known as Cœur de Lion, or Richard the Lionheart, because of his fierce reputation as a warrior, reigned from July 6, 1189 until his death on April 6, 1199. He was killed by an archer who stood on the wall of his castle, who was holding a crossbow in one hand and a frying pan in the other.
