Storyboard Text

  • Origin of the Crusades
  • Jerusalem has been taken from us, we must take it back at once!
  • Okay.
  • The 1st Crusade
  • We recaptured Jerusalem!
  • Okay.
  • The 2nd Crusade
  • I can't believe we failed, THIS IS HOPELESS!
  • Okay.
  • The Muslims managed to take control over Jerusalem; Pope Urban ll clearly dissatisfied called for a crusade at once to regain control.
  • The 3rd Crusade
  • The most successful crusade was the very first one. The Crusaders were able to recapture Jerusalem, which eventually the Muslims took back after a period of time.
  • The 4th Crusade
  • You gotta do what you gotta do sometimes.
  • The 2nd Crusade mission was to recover Edessa, but resulted in a failure leading many of the Crusaders to lose hope because the Holy Crusade had failed
  • Effects of The Crusaders
  • YO, we returned and we brought some good stuff. Try it.
  • The goal for this crusade was to once again recapture Jerusalem from the Muslims. The crusaders partly succeeded in this as they were only able to take back some of Jerusalem.
  • The objective if this crusade was to attack one of the Muslims power in order to gain Holy land, however, the Crusaders failed horribly as they didn't even reach their destination and managed to run out of supplies giving them no choice but to loot their Christian cities, which lead to the partial destruction of Constantinople; this crusade was viewed by many Christians as a disgrace.
  • Returning Crusaders brought new tastes and increased the demand for spices, Oriental textiles, and other exotic fares. They bought Europe some much-needed time. Without centuries of Crusading effort, it is difficult to see how western Europe could have escaped conquest by Muslim armies
  • I guess.
