There are many historical topics which the historians prefer to study and discuss during the medieval ages, but the Crusades were just one of the best known conflicts of this period. The idea of Crusades existed since the first centuries of Islam and their concept is believed to have been born in the seventh century. When the Crusaders reached Europe they were faced with two enemies, the Christians and the infidels, and both had their own set of grievances and feelings towards each other.
There are several medieval ages that were significantly affected by this conflict and they were probably the most prominent and significant ones. The events surrounding the early years of the Crusades are covered in the paper topics. The most prominent and significant of these are the years from 732 onwards. Here is a brief description of this part of the paper topics.
During the first years of the Crusades, the crusading forces were led by Saladin and were known as the Knights Templar. The problem in their story was that the first twenty years of their crusade were in the Holy Land and in those years they managed to kill a number of people and also gave rise to many legends. These legends were later interpreted as correct by many historians.
After the year of 732, the Crusades became much more serious as the crusading army and the people belonging to them faced much difficulty in delivering their mission. The main problem was that there were numerous battles going on all over the world. During the year of 741, Saladinwas able to capture Jerusalem and killed the Templars along with a large number of their supporters.
After the failure of the crusades in the Holy Land, the crusaders were unable to reach the East for several years and the people were left to face problems at home. In the same year, the armies and people associated with the crusades were able to reach Constantinople. The Crusaders made a continuous assault on the city and gained revenge for all the wrongs they had suffered from the Muslims in the past years.
During the next years of the crusades, the crusaders were unable to carry out any more offensive attacks because the Byzantine Empire and its army managed to save many lives and possessions. Soon the crusaders were forced to withdraw and were forced to surrender all their possessions and to live as refugees in the Byzantine Empire. During this time the first contact between the Arabs and Christians in the Holy Land was made.
During the reign of Emperor Alexius I (ruled 1081-1096), the crusaders were unable to continue their crusade against the Muslims. However, as a reward for the earlier successes, Emperor Alexius allowed the crusaders to continue their crusade in the Eastern countries without bloodshed. This was followed by the partition of the crusaders into the western and eastern portions.
