Storyboard Text

  • The Seljuk Turks was slowly becoming a great empire. In the 11th century, Palestine became under the rule of the Seljuk Turks. They soon went to war with the Byzantine Empire for control over the Holy Land.
  • Four nobles led the first crusade and headed to Palestine. The crusaders attacked the city of Antioch. A traitor helped the crusaders take over Antioch. Next, the crusader attacked Jerusalem. They were victorious. They killed Jews and Muslims  or sold them off into slavery.
  • Muslims captured Edessa. The Christians responded by sending another crusade to get back the Holy Land. The Christians tried to travel to Edessa through Damascus. Edessa had sent some aid to Damascus help in the fight against the Christians. The Christian army lost that battle.
  • Richard, the leader of the Christians, personally went on the third crusade to try to win Jerusalem back from Salah al-Din. Both armies fought each other, but both were weak. They decided to end all the battles and sign a peace treaty. They agreed that Salah owns Jerusalem, but Christian Pilgrims can enter Jerusalem.
  • King Richard I of England is an impatient leader of the Christians. He is a brave leader as well as impatient. He is willing to fight alongside his army to get back Jerusalem. Even if he didn't get back Jerusalem, he managed to sign a peace treaty and let Christian Pilgrims enter Jerusalem.
  • Later Crusades were won by the Muslims. Every time a group of common people dispatched to try to gain back some Holy Land, they were captured and sold off. The Later Crusades were led by peasants and common folk not by the military. While the Christians failed in their Later Crusades, the Muslims managed to gain back some of the land they had lost.
