Turkic ruler Saladin united the Muslim armies of South Asia and North Africa and has taken over Jerusalem. Three kings who have joined the crusade have not achieved much due to Emperor Frederick Barbarossa dying and King Phillip II returning to Europe. The lone king, King Richard I, failed to retake the city but instead has taken a deal from Saladin to keep control of the lands north of Jaffa.
