Once called the Levant, the area encompassing modern day Israel and parts of Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey fell under the siege of Christian soldiers in 1096 AD. Galvanized by Pope Urban II, waves of Christian warriors fought their way from Europe to the Holy Land intent on wresting it away from Arab occupiers. Countless battles, amazing feats, and unforgettable characters forged legends and legacies, but clear victory remained elusive. Only the 13th century and a new menace from Asia finally brought an end to conflict.
