The Hitches for the Crusaders D.18.07.27

26 Jul

The Crusade had all sorts of troubles. Barbarossa, the emperor, drowned on the journey crossing a river and many German knights turned back.
Basically one-third of the invading force turned back without ever reaching the holy land. The crusaders were not as effective in their fight as they hoped to be.
Richard the Lionheart, who was the main leader of the crusade, captured the coastal cities of Acra and Jafa, but he failed to take Jerusalem.
