The battle of al-Buqaia
Nur al-Din was surprised at Al-Buqai'a al-Hosn, almost being captured and suffering a humiliating defeat. Asbridge marks this as the point at which he became truly committed to jihad. He exacted revenge shortly thereafter at Harim, crushing the armies of Antioch and Tripoli.

The Battle of Hattin
The Battle of Hattin
At Hattin, Saladin won the decisive victory that ultimately resulted in the fall of Jerusalem (2 Oct 1187) and the confinement of Frankish power to the enclaves of Tyre, Tripoli and Antioch. As for the battle itself, King Guy was baited out of his staging point at Saffuriya by an attack on Tiberias and then outflanked and surrounded by a superior force in the waterless plateau around an ancient volcano known as the Horns of Hattin. Raymond III of Tripoli, Balian of Ibelin, and Reynaud of Sidon fled the field, abandoning Guy to his fate.

The Limousin Rebellion of 1182
The Limousin Rebellion of 1182
Tiring of the tournament and again chafing over his political irrelevance, the Young King saw an opportunity to take make his place by breaking with Richard; his opening was the simmering feud between his brother and the nobles of Limousin, trouble which had been sparked by the disputed succession to the County of Limoges in June 1181. Richard had bayed them relentlessly- and that with the assistance of Henry and the Old King- until bringing them to heel in July 1182. But sensing fresh opportunity, the Taillefers and and Angoulêmes sent overtures of fealty to the Young King. The bait was taken and war-footing against the Duke resumed. During Henry II's great Christmas court of 1182, Henry and Richard quarreled and, feigning reconciliation, Henry joined the rebels at Limoges while ostensibly bearing the Angevin olive branch. Richard responded with a series of lightening raids to prevent a concentration of forces and then invested Limoges. As for Henry II, he initially sat out the hostilities until an attempted parlay resulted in the felling of the king's horse. Thinking the arrow bolt was meant for him, the Old King was driven directly into the arms of Richard. The belligerents now declared for the Young King included King Philip of France, Geoffrey of Brittany, Duke Hugh of Burgundy, Count Raymond of Toulouse, Viscount Aimar V, and Geoffrey de Lusignan. (King Alfonso sided with the Old King and Henry as a check on Toulouse.) This impressive show of support, on the other hand, did not include funds and so Henry slipped out of Limoges to rob nearby abbeys in hopes that the proceeds would keep his mercenaries in the field. Richard's siege might have collapsed had Henry not fallen ill, succumbing finally to dysentery at Martel. With his death the rebellion collapsed. "Like the king in chess, the Young King had possessed very little power of his own, yet without him it was impossible to carry on the game." Gillingham, 75.

The Siege of Antioch
The Siege of Antioch
Gustave Döre, artist. While Bóhemund engineered the delivery of the city by a tower commander, a small contingent of his men actually scaled the wall and secured control of a postern gate that lead to the fall of everything save the citadel. The following day the army of Abbasid commander Kerbogha invested the city. Facing starvation and a promise of no quarter, Bóhemund threw his threadbare force against the Muslims on 28 Jun 1098. Kerbodha dithered. When he finally brought up his main force its cohesion was shattered by the flight of the troops stationed just beyond the gates. The Christians would hold Antioch until it was sacked by the Mamluk sultan, Baybars, in 1268.

The Suppression of the Knights Templar
The Suppression of the Knights Templar
With years of war straining the royal coffers, French king Philip IV began targeting vulnerable sources of wealth for confiscation: first, he ordered the expulsion of the kingdom's Jews (21 Jun 1306) and then leveled charges of heresy and sodomy at the Templars. Mass arrests were carried out on 13 Oct 1307 or Friday the 13th. This included their Grand Master, James of Molay, who was in France to consult with the king and pope on a new crusade. Pope Clement V succeeded in slowing the rush to judgment by calling for inquisitions in the other Catholic kingdoms where reception was, at best, lukewarm; however, Philip would not be denied. After the pope closed the order in 1312, its properties were parceled, its members packed off to other orders and the most visible leaders imprisoned. Molay and Geoffrey of Charney renounced their confessions and were burned at the stake on 18 Mar 1314.
