  Raynald Of Chatillon - LoveToKnow 1911
One of Raynald's first acts was a brutal assault on the patriarch of Antioch; while two years later he made an unjustifiable attack on Cyprus, in the course of which the island was ravaged.
The death of Raynald caused him to be regarded as a martyr; his life only shows him to have been a brigand of great capacity.
He is the apotheosis of the feudal liberty which the barons of the Holy Land vindicated for themselves; and he shows, in his reckless brigandage, the worst side of their character.

They were brought to his tent; and Saladin, after rebuking Raynald strongly for his treachery, offered him his life if he would become a Mahommedan.

Raynald of Chatillon tortures Patriarch Aimery of Antioch (From MS of William of Tyre's Historia and Old French Continuation, painted in Acre, 13th century Bib.
Raynald's origins are obscure; Du Cange believed he was from Châtillon-sur-Marne, but according to Jean Richard, he was a son of Hervé II of Donzy, and he inherited Châtillon-sur-Loing sometime before joining the Second Crusade in 1147.
That year he allied with Sibylla and Guy of Lusignan against Count Raymond, and his influence contributed to the recognition of Guy as king of Jerusalem, although Raymond and the Ibelins were attempting to advance the claim of his stepson Humphrey's wife Princess Isabella.

They were hopelessly trapped, the treacherous old rogue, Raynald de Chatillon and his foolish young protégé, Guy de Lusignan, King of Jerusalem.
Raynald himself, by a series of marriages and alliances, had wound up as Lord of OutreJordain, controlling castles and trade routes to the southeast of the Dead Sea.
And then there was Raynald, who looted neighbors, violated treaties, and enjoyed tossing victims from the walls of his castle at Kerak.

Yet Manuel's attention was to be drawn to Antioch again in 1156, this time as a result of an appalling atrocity: the new Prince of Antioch, Raynald of Chatillon, invaded the Byzantine province of Cyprus.
Manuel at first ignored the prostrate Raynald, chatting with his courtiers; the Latin historian William of Tyre commented that this ignominious scene continued for so long that all present were "disgusted" by it.
Manuel participated in the building and decorating of many of the basilicas and Greek monasteries in the Holy Land, including the church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, where thanks to his efforts the Byzantine clergy were allowed to perform the Greek liturgy each day.

The crusaders defeated Saladin at the Battle of Montgisard in 1177, and in the early 1180s there was an uneasy truce between the two sides, which was broken by the raids of Raynald on Muslim caravans passing through his fief of Oultrejordain.
Guy ordered the army to march against Saladin at Tiberias, which is what Saladin had planned, for he had calculated that he could defeat the crusaders only in a field battle, rather than by besieging their fortifications.
When Guy offered the goblet to his fellow captive Raynald, Saladin knocked the goblet away, saying that he had not offered water to Raynald and thus was not bound by the Muslim rules of hospitality.

Neither side could dislodge the other's position, and Saladin eventually withdrew, but Guy's hesitation, considered a sign of weakness, and his support for Raynald's brazen attempts to provoke Saladin caused Baldwin, who was suffering from leprosy, to depose him from the regency of the kingdom.
Sixteen-year-old Humphrey was Raynald's step-son and heir to Oultrejordain; Isabella, only eleven years old, was Baldwin IV's step-sister.
Humphrey's mother Stephanie of Milly sent some of the wedding feast to Saladin, and the sultan, who had no quarrel with anyone but Raynald, agreed not to target the wedding chamber of Humphrey and Isabella.
