I hear by call out for a crusade
We won the battle!!!
WE have finally captured Edessa!
The pope Urban II calls out for a crusade.
In 1098 the crusaders celebrated their first major victory.
When Muslims started to band together, they were able to fight back more effectively. In 1144, they captured Edessa, the capital of the northernmost crusader kingdom.
In 1191, Richard's army forced the surrender of the Palestinian town of Acre. Then Richard fought his way toward Jerusalem, but his army was not strong enough to take the city.
None of the later Crusades succeeded in recapturing Jerusalem. This victory ended some 200 years of Christian kingdoms in the Holy Land
