The Lion in Winter (1968)
Goldman's comedy takes place in ll83 in the court of King Henry II, which was evidently quite a racy place, abounding in "delivious knifings of one another with words blisteringly well formed". Goldman never pretends the play is sober history, but rather, concentrates on the quality and content of the relationships which “made” history. We all know that Richard the Lionhearted (Henry's son) became King; it‘s how he got there that makes the trip entertaining and often very amusing.
