Although, Richard I was well known for his bravery and courage in life it would be his death that would prove the true valor of the warrior king. During the Siege of the Castle Chateau de Chalus-Charbrol Richard was fatally shot by a crossbowman. Richard was walking around the perimeter of the castle, without armor on, when we spotted a crossbowman wielding a crossbow in one hand and a frying pan in the other hand. Throughout the day the crossbowman had used the frying pan as a shield to deflect enemy arrows. As Richard looked up the crossbowman aimed and fired an arrow at Richard, which struck him in the shoulder by the neck. Richard tried to remove the arrow by himself, but when he failed to do so summoned the field surgeon (or butcher) to remove the arrow. The field surgeon managed to remove the arrow, but not before the wound became gangrenous. As Richard lay dying he summoned the crossbowman who had hit him. Richard forgave the boy, set him free and awarded him 100 shillings. Richard is reported to have died a few days later in his mothers arms.
