LIST OF CHARACTERS
Cedric - Saxon nobleman, father of Ivanhoe. He hates the Normans and wishes to restore the Saxon monarchy.
Ivanhoe - Son of Cedric. Although named Wilfred, he is called Ivanhoe because he has been given a great manor called Ivanhoe. He is a Crusader and a loyal follower of the Norman King Richard I.
Athelstane - Lord of Coningsburgh. He is a weak and inert character, descended from Saxon nobility. He is Cedric's last great hope for Saxon restoration to the throne.
Rowena - Cedric's ward. Her descent can be traced to Alfred the Great. She is beautiful and well bred, and Ivanhoe is in love with her.
Brian de Bois-Guilbert - Knight of the Order of the Knights Templar. Like Ivanhoe, he is recently returned from the Crusades in Jerusalem.
Front-de-Boeuf - Norman owner of Torquilstone Castle, companion of de Bois-Guilbert.
Richard Plantagenet - Rightful king of England and called the Lion-Hearted. He has been kidnapped on his way back from the Crusades.
John Plantagenet - Richard's brother. He spends most of his time plotting to keep his brother from coming back to England, since he wants to inherit the throne.
Waldemar Fitzurse - John's advisor, a wily man who thinks of nothing but his own rise to power if John succeeds in supplanting Richard.
Rebecca - A beautiful young Jewess, daughter of Isaac of York. Unlike her father, she is generous and kind-hearted. As well, she is a healer.
Maurice De Bracy - Knight attached to Prince John's dubious court.
