Politics and world events

Crusader States

  • January 25th : An army of the Kingdom of Jerusalem led by King Baldwin III. , reinforced by Knights of the Hospitallers and Templars , begins with the siege of Ascalon .
  • August 19 : The crusaders under Baldwin III. win after almost seven months of siege by giving up the Fatimid defenders and advance into Askalon , where they steal considerable amounts of money, provisions and war material. The rulership of Ascalon was entrusted to Baldwin's brother Amalrich , Count of Jaffa. The conquest is the last great triumph of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, but the political benefit is extremely small. On the contrary, because the conquest of Askalon made expansion into Egypt possible, it deprived the north of forces and challenged the Syrian ruler Nur ad-Din to march on Damascus .
