It tells the story of the tensions and struggles between Norman rulers and a few remaining Saxon noble families.

On their return to their homeland after their failure to vanquish the Muslims, King Richard is captured and imprisoned by the Austrian ruler. His brother, Prince John, takes the throne and allows the Normans to abuse their power and usurp Saxon lands. Later, Ivanhoe comes back home disguised and engages in a struggle to win his beloved, Rowena, while Prince John strives to prevent his newly-freed brother from returning to his kingdom and throne. After numerous schemes, duels between lovers and bloody incidents, King Richard and Ivanhoe end triumphant and the latter finally marries Rowena.

Wilfred of Ivanhoe earns his father's disapproval by falling in love with Rowena, his father's ward. Then he serves with Richard I during the Crusades, while the King's brother attempts to take the throne in Richard's absence. When the King and Ivanhoe return, a series of adventures take place against the backdrop of a tournament of the Knights Templar. Ivanhoe catches the eye of Rebecca, a beautiful and courageous Jewess; he is taken prisoner, along with his father and hers, and Rowena as well; and they rely upon one Locksley (Robin Hood) and his band of outlaws to set them free. When Rebecca is subsequently charged with witchcraft, she asks Ivanhoe to champion her in a trial by combat...but have his affections shifted, or does he still love Rowena?, Set in England, Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe takes the readers back to the Medieval Ages, about one hundred years after the Norman conquest and the historical battle of Hastings (1066). It tells the story of the tensions and struggles between Norman rulers and a few remaining Saxon noble families. Wilfred of Ivanhoe is a young Saxon noble, he is disinherited by his father for supporting the Norman king, the famous Richard the Lion-Hearted. Ivanhoe decides to join the king in the crusades against the Muslim Saracens and is said to play a heroic role in the battles. On their return to their homeland after their failure to vanquish the Muslims, King Richard is captured and imprisoned by the Austrian ruler. His brother, Prince John, takes the throne and allows the Normans to abuse their power and usurp Saxon lands. Later, Ivanhoe comes back home disguised and engages in a struggle to win his beloved, Rowena, while Prince John strives to prevent his newly-freed brother from returning to his kingdom and throne. After numerous schemes, duels between lovers and bloody incidents, King Richard and Ivanhoe end triumphant and the latter finally marries Rowena., Set in the 12th century, during the reign of Richard the Lionheart, Ivanhoe tells of the love of Wilfred of Ivanhoe for the Lady Rowena, his father Cedric's ward. Cedric intends Rowena for the oafish Athelstane, and banishes his son. 'The love of battle is the food upon which we live - the dust of the ml̊ě is the breath of our nostrils! We live not - we wish not to live - longer than while we are victorious and renowned. Such ... are the laws of chivalry to which we are sworn, and to which we offer all that we hold dear.' Set in the twelfth century, during the reign of Richard the Lionheart, Ivanhoe tells of the love of Wilfred of Ivanhoe for the Lady Rowena, his father Cedric's ward. Cedric, who is dedicated to the liberation of the Saxon people from Norman oppression and to the revival of the Saxon royal line, intends Rowena - a descendant of King Alfred - for the oafish Athelstane, and he banishes his son. Ivanhoe joins King Richard on his crusade in the Holy Land, and eventually the two men return secretly to England - Ivanhoe to regain his inheritance and the hand of Rowena, Richard to secured his kingdom from his scheming brother John who has ruled in Richard's absence. With a gallery of memorable characters, high and low, Ivanhoe is a powerful and exciting evocation of a medieval world of jousting, baronial rivalry, siege warfare and trial by combat, and makes no attempt to gloss over the violence and brutality that lay behind the chivalric ideals., TBX, TBXdistributor, Tantor Unabridged classics, Tantor unabridged classics., The classic collection, The epitome of the chivalric novel, Ivanhoe sweeps listeners into Medieval England and the lives of a memorable cast of characters. Ivanhoe, a trusted ally of Richard the Lion Hearted, returns from the Crusades to reclaim the inheritance his father denied him. Rebecca, a vibrant, beautiful Jewish woman, is defended by Ivanhoe against a charge of witchcraft-but it is Lady Rowena who is Ivanhoe's true love. The wicked Prince John plots to usurp England's throne, but two of the most popular heroes in all of English literature-Richard the Lion Hearted and the well-loved, famous outlaw Robin Hoo-team up to defeat the Normans and regain the castle. The success of this novel lies with Sir Walter Scott's skillful blend of historic reality, chivalric romance, and high adventure., This, one of the great works of fiction, is of historical value for its graphic picture of the Saxons and Normans in England after the Norman occupation of the land. The tournament at Ashby, the siege of Torquilstone, the trial of Rebecca, the Jewess,--these are a few incidents in this story "of the days of old When knights were bold." Robin Hood, under the name of Locksley the yeoman, appears as one of the characters., TotalBooxdistributor, Triangles (Interpersonal relations), Unabridged., Vendor-supplied metadata, Wilfred of Ivanhoe returns from the crusades only to discover a corrupted England. He attempts to save his love, Lady Rowena, right many wrongs done by the ruling class, and reconcile with his father., Wilfred of Ivanhoe was thrown out of his father's home when he fell in love with his father Cedrics ward, Lady Rowena. Ivanhoe later returns from fighting in the Crusades and is wounded in a jousting tournament.
