Siege of Jerusalem (1099) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1617 words)
After the successful siege of Antioch in June of 1098, the crusaders remained in the area for the rest of the year.
The city was well-prepared for the siege, and the Fatimid governor Iftikar ad-Daula had expelled most of the Christians.
The siege quickly became legendary and in the 12th century it was the subject of the Chanson de Jérusalem, a major chanson de geste in the Crusade cycle.
Siege of Jerusalem (1187) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1637 words)
It resulted in the recapture of Jerusalem by Saladin and the near total collapse of the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, and was the catalyst for the Third Crusade.
After returning to Jerusalem, it was decided that seven thousand of the poor inhabitants could be ransomed from money drawn from the treasury that Henry II of England had established there, which was being guarded by the Hospitallers.
The Siege of Jerusalem was the climax of the plot of the 2005 movie Kingdom of Heaven directed and produced by Ridley Scott.
