~Saladin captures Jerusalem in 1187. This is one of the main events that encouraged Richard to persue his Crusades, because he considered that it should be a free land.
~Richard and Saladin come to a truce in 1192. Rather than defeating him, Richard sees it as the noble thing to do to make a truce with Saladin. Prior to this, Christians had to pay a toll to enter Jerusalem. Their agreement was that Christians could enter Jerusalem without paying anything.
