    A billion in American is not the same as in English, therefore,especially as Richard was an English king, how much is three billion US dollars in the current British currency?

    Thus the legend of Robin Hood! Old Richard the Lionheart was ransomed and returned home, only to set out again and get himself killed in France(an interesting story in itself. The French Revolution wasn’t kind to his remains; they’ve been lost). Prince John became king after all; and was eventually forced to sign the Magna Carta which virtually established the British government we know today. Being French, and a Plantagenet, Richard spoke almost no English, and lived in England for only about 6 month of his whole 10 year reign. He was also the Duke of Normandy and Acquitaine, among several other titles.

    There’s websites for currency exchange; but I’d guess somewhere around 2 1/4 billion pounds.

    As soon as King John signed the Magna Carta, it was declared null and void by Pope Innocent III.

    King John also lost back nearly all of England’s French territories to King Philip of France; He had a habit of turning his army around and retreating before battle was even joined. It earned him the nickename, “John Softsword.”

    The US dollar is also the official currency of Ecuador. No money
    exchanges needed.

    From the looks of the polluted Hong Kong harbor they probably dump them right into the water.

    Iceland is considering adopting
    the Canadian dollar, which the advocats say is a better fit than the Euro because Canada is also a resource exporter.

    Actually, in all seriousness, they are moved to above ground crypts that are several stories tall. I saw a docuamentary on this several years ago.

    I used to personally be against cremation, but over time my opinion changed. I think it should be the “only” way to respectfully dispose of human remains. I mean, they’re dead, space is very limited for those of us still breathing.

    If you really want that much space 6 feet under ground, I’m sure we can find you some.
