I’m looking for a novel I once read.
A semi-historical novel about Norman archer knight.

Things I think I remember about the novel are:
The Title of the book was only two words “The PH????”.
The main character is that of a Norman born knight.
That the main character was a real person. But after that most of the book is fiction.
That the real knight died during the Third Crusade.
That the main character was a skilled archer.
The novel takes place in Normandy and England.
The novel ends before the start of the Third Crusade.
That the main character is forced to quite England after being setup in a plot to kill Richard I, during a hunting trip.
I checked the book out of the SIU library around 1977, it was an old book then.
The book was around 1000 pages.

Thank You for Your time in reading this, and for any help You can be
