  Raymond III of Tripoli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Raymond III of Tripoli (1140–1187) was Count of Tripoli from 1152 to 1187 and Prince of Galilee and Tiberias in right of his wife Eschiva.
Raymond of Saint-Gilles was a great-grandson of Raymond IV of Toulouse (Raymond I of Tripoli).
Raymond also married Eschiva of Bures, Princess of Galilee and the widow of Walter of Saint-Omer of Tiberias, which allowed him to gain control over much of the northern part of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, especially the fortress at Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee.

 Bohemund III of Antioch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1177, along with Raymond III and Philip, Count of Flanders, who had arrived on pilgrimage, Bohemund besieged Harim, but they could not recapture it and the siege was abandoned.
Patriarch Heraclius of Jerusalem was sent to mediate in 1181, with Raynald of Chatillon, Raymond III of Tripoli, Arnold of Toroga, and Roger des Moulins, but Bohemund refused to acquiesce, and expelled the mediators as well as a number of his own nobles.
Raymond of Tripoli died soon after Hattin, and had named Bohemund's elder son Raymond as his successor, but Bohemund ignored this and instead installed his second son, Bohemund IV, as count.

 The Counts of Toulouse and the County of Tripoli
Count Raymond III of Tripoli, who reigned from 1152 to 1187, was an important figure in the history of the Kingdom to the south, due to his close relationship to its Kings (his mother Hodierna was a daughter of Baldwin II of Jerusalem) and to his own position as Prince of Galilee through his wife.
Raymond argued unsuccessfully in favour of peace with Saladin, but, ironically, it was Saladin's siege of Raymond's Countess in Tiberias that led the Crusader army into Galilee before its defeat at Hattin in 1187, and although Raymond survived the battle, he died soon afterwards.

Raymond III of Tripoli had died shortly after the Battle of Hattin and leaving behind no direct heir, he had named his godson, Raymond of Antioch, the eldest son of prince Bohemond III, as his successor.

On the other hand, the city commune of Antioch supported the claim of Count Bohemond of Tripoli on the grounds that he was the nearest relative of the last ruling prince, a principle which was becoming more and more important in the crusader states.

 The Assassins: 4   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
At this time Raymond's marriage was in a bad state: his wife Hodierna, sister of Queen Melisende, was headstrong and flighty, and Raymond, who was intensely jealous, tried to keep her shut up like a Muslim woman.
Raymond III of Tripoli, son of that Raymond who had been murdered by the Assassins in 1152, became regent; he was able and determined but he could not unite the kingdom.
Two parties arose, one composed of the native barons and the Hospitallers, who followed Raymond and who were prepared to reach a sensible accommodation with the Muslims, and the other, aggressively and militantly Christian, composed of the Templars and of newcomers from the West with little understanding of the situation in the East.

There were also three other major Crusader states, the County of Edessa, the County of Tripoli, and the Principality of Antioch, which were not part of the kingdom and did not technically owe any feudal services (they often gave military service but just as often did not).
According to the 13th century jurist John of Ibelin the four highest barons in the Kingdom were the Count of Jaffa and Ascalon, the Prince of Galilee, the Lord of Sidon, and the Lord of Oultrejordain.
This seigneury was an unusual creation given to Joscelin III, the nominal count of Edessa, which had been lost long before.

Raymond III of Tripoli was not a complacent courtier of Guy de Lusignan, but a major rival who had his own power base.
Moreover, Raymond III of Tripoli made an alliance with Saladin against his Christian enemies in Jerusalem.
If the film had shown Saladin giving the Christians breathing space while he attacked the Muslim ruler of Aleppo, and had been clearer about Raymond III's alliance with Saladin, it could have cut across the Islam/Christianity binary division and showed the warriors as human beings rather than as members of a particular religion.

Raymond argued that a march from Acre to Tiberias was exactly what Saladin wanted and that Sephoria was a strong position for the Crusaders to defend, but due to internal court politics and accusations of cowardice, King Guy ordered the army to march immediately against Saladin at Tiberias.
On the morning of July 4, the Crusaders, thirsty and demoralised, broke camp and changed direction for the springs of Hattin, but their ragged approach was attacked by Saladin's army which blocked the route forward and any possible retreat.
News of the disastrous defeat at Hattin was the catalyst for the formation of the Third Crusade, and was also said to have caused Pope Urban III to die of shock.
