  1. 12/12/2021 · On September 7, 1191, it was extremely hot near Arsuf and the crusaders were surrounded by Saladin’s army, and there was no way out. Richard the Lionheart did not want his army to suffer a similar fate to the crusader army at Hattin, defeated by Saladin, so he consolidated his ranks and prepared for their defense.

  2. Richard I and Saladin dominate the history of the First Crusade. As with most major leaders of the Medieval Times, they have gained almost mythical status and it is often difficult to differentiate fact from fiction. First-hand accounts of the Third Crusade, as well as research by historians, offer as more information about these two leaders.

    In merrie England, King Richard I (Henry Wilcoxon) is jousting. He goes after an annoying troubadour, gets into a fight with a blacksmith, and humiliates them both in front of his entourage of posh, guffawing knights. Shaping up to be quite the hero, Dick. King Philip II of France arrives with his snotty sister, Alys, to whom Richard is betrothed. ...

    Richard doesn’t want to marry Alys. The Crusades skips his real-life excuse: she had been living at his father Henry II’s court, and he thought his dad had already relieved her of her virginity. In the film, he hits on a bright idea to get out of the wedding – go on a crusade! This wizard wheeze is spoiled when Alys says she’s going to go, too. “No...

    Richard hasn’t realised his army might need food. With his men starving after a long march to Marseille, he agrees to marry Berengaria (Loretta Young), the daughter of a nearby bumpkin, Sancho of Navarre, to secure 7,000 cattle. This isn’t how it happened at all. Richard’s mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine, had been angling for a strategic match with Na...

    The crusaders arrive in Acre to join the Christian siege of the Muslim city. Saladin (Ian Keith) turns up in gorgeous flowing robes, with drummers, guards and dozens of beautiful horses. (This movie cost a then massive $1.42m but was a flop, losing nearly $800,000 on its first release.) “They told me he had horns like the devil,” remarks Berengaria...

    The other crusaders try to make Richard give up Berengaria and marry Alys, but he won’t. She is in love with him now, though he still seems to be a jerk. The film tactfully leaves out the real Richard’s cold-blooded beheading of 2,700 Muslim civilian hostages in August 1191, which doesn’t exactly say “hero”. In an act of self-sacrifice, Berengaria ...

    Richard turns up to rescue Berengaria. Saladin is nice to him, too. “By Allah, I wish you might have been my brother, not my foe,” he says. “Accept Islam and I will make you king of Jerusalem.” Richard isn’t up for it, having belatedly discovered Christianityon his crusade. “So what if we call him Allah or God?” asks Berengaria. “Shall men fight be...

    The Crusades makes a surprising effort towards historical balance: if anything, it feels as if DeMille wanted to make Saladin the hero. But the real crusades were definitely not about who got to boink Berengaria.

UPDATE*** Lionheart and the rest of the Crusaders have captured Acre! Even more surprisingly, Richard and Saladin have decided to end all the fighting from afar.
