Shout Factory describes the synopsis as follows,

“With his kingdom on the brink of chaos, Richard the Lionheart must decide whether to fight for his crown … or for his love for a commoner. Days away from his coronation, a secret meeting with the woman he loves turns into a life-or-death fight for survival for the future King of England. Ambushed by hired mercenaries, and with the identity of the man who ordered his murder a mystery, Richard is left with no allies he can trust. As civil war looms, the young prince is forced to face not only his enemies but the harsh responsibilities of leadership.”

The movie production was handled by the Stronghold movie studio.
