The Fairytale
"King Richard hearing of the pranks
Of Robin Hood and his men,
He much admired, and more desired
To see both him and them."

Richard I (8 September 1157 – 6 April 1199) was King of England from 6 July 1189 until his death. He was known as Cœur de Lion, or Richard the Lionheart, even before his accession, because of his reputation as a great military leader and warrior. He was seen as a pious hero by his subjects. He remains one of the very few Kings of England remembered by his epithet. He is an enduring, iconic figure in England and France.

Richard was the older brother and, according to Prince John, was favored by their mother. In contrast to Prince John, Richard is a strong leader and a good man. His confidence and kindness was known through the land. Richard ruled England as King. King Richard felt strongly about his faith and went to fight in the Crusades. In his absence, he left his brother John in charge of the throne. While he was gone, Prince John usurped the throne, and became known for his harsh, dictatorial rule.

The very name of Richard is enough to cause Prince John to throw a tantrum. Later, when facing death, Robin Hood cheers on Richard's name, noting that the crown is rightfully his, and not Prince John's. Eventually, King Richard returns to England to set everything right, much to the relief of the people of Nottingham. He imprisons Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham for their crimes. He also pardons Robin Hood and gives his blessing for Robin to marry Maid Marian. After the ceremony, King Richard notes to Friar Tuck that he now has an outlaw for an in-law.

Storybrooke, Maine

Alexander DuBois is a man of means. While not exorbitantly rich, he is quite comfortable. His money comes from real estate and investments. He currently does not have a job. Instead, he does a lot of philanthropy for Storybrooke. He worked hard to raise funds for an addition on the town library and does a lot with those in need of help. Alex is currently single. He likes brunettes and wishes for an heir.

My version of King Richard the I belongs to Disney, Once Upon A Time Belongs to ABC, and I am not affiliated with Tim Dekay in any way. I make no profit.

Alex/Richard is over the age of 18 and so am I.
