Thay stole our land! We must recover it! Those Turks are getting on my nerves...
What is his problem? We already had the land. He is like a stupid bug.
FROOT SALADIN YUMMY YUMMY
I don't really understand the point of sacking our own city, but everyone else is doing it, so I will.
This is the Third Crusade and the most crucial one. Saladin, a Muslim leader, led the battle and also was very kind and generous. He offered many deals and allowed Christians to visit Jerusalem. King Richaard of England tried to take the Holy Land back, but failed.
Saladin and the Muslims were victorious and successfully defended the Holy Land (Palestine). Unsuccessful Richard traveled back home.
In the fourth Crusade, the Crusaders sacked thier own home, Constantinople. The whole Crusade turned out to be a flop. The Muslims won.
There were many other Crusades, but they were unsuccessful. In the end, the Turks had full control over the Holy Land and still do today.
Yay, those dumb Christians finally stopped rebelling! PARTY!
The Crusades had many lasting effects. First of all, the king had more power. The taxes increased and the property of nobles who died without heirs would go to the king. Secondly, since Palestine is on the Silk Road, Europeans got many new items such as spices and silk.
