On returning from the Holy Land, Ivanhoe was involved as a Richard supporter in the king's war against Prince John. Loved by the beautiful Rebecca, Jewish daughter of Isaac of York, Ivanhoe defended her innocence with his sword and spear, against the accusations from the Great Master of the Templars of being possessed by the devil and having set a love spell on the templar knight Brian de Bois-Guilbert. Eventually, Cedric accepts his son's intentions of getting married to Lady Rowena and the wedding took place in the York cathedral in the presence of King Arthur. This marriage set the end of the fighting between Saxons and Normans whose conflict came from the time of William the Conqueror in England.
