Description

Platform:PC

In the 12th and 13th centuries, the expansion of Christianity sought to extend its outreach. Asia had shifted from Zoroastrianism to Islam. As the area where Jesus roamed, it became the target for repeated conquest.

The Muslims were broken into several groups most of which were called Saracens. Soon after the death of Muhammad these groups began raiding and conquering Arabia and then Africa, and later into Europe. Spain was under Saracen rule in the 11th century. The Saracens controlled most of the Muslim land, but still remained ununited until the Turks, another Muslim group attacked the Byzantine Empire and started the Crusades. The Europeans wanted to destroy these infidels and attacked the Holy land that was controlled by the Saracens, and won the prize after the first war.

The Crusaders felt pretty full of themselves and left several major kingdom-colonies controlled by each of the European powers. The Muslims didn’t like this and began some minor raids on each, which only infuriated the Europeans enough to have another Crusade. The next Crusade had less success, since this time more Europeans died and less Saracen-Muslims, and some small fiefs one the boarders were destroyed. But, it was enough for the Crusaders.

Richard the Lionhearted asked for peace and a treaty was signed by Saladin. The treaty was short-lived, Richard the Lionhearted ordered the citizens of Acre to be killed. But after more fighting the Crusaders left never to return.

The Saracen kingdom in Spain was taken by the northern Christians led by El Cid, and the Saracen Empire slowly dissolved back to the deserts from whence it came, over the next few centuries.

In Lionheart King’s Crusade, you undertake a strategic rematch between Richard’s forces and the Saracens. Can you change history?
