John of Ibelin, Lord of Beirut (1177_1236) became Lord of Arsur in 1207 when he married Melisende of Arsur (born c.1170). Their son John of Arsur (c.1211-1258) inherited the title. The title then passed to John of Arsur's eldest son Balian (1239-1277).
In 1265 Arsuf fell back under Muslim rule when Baibars, ruler of the Mamluks captured it. The city walls and fortress were destroyed, and the city became uninhabited.
