Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem (1099-1291) The Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem was founded as a result of the First Crusade, in 1099.
On 5 April, 1291, the Sultan Malek- Aschraf appeared before Saint-Jean d'Acre and, despite the courage of its defenders, the city was taken by storm on 28 May. The Kingdom of Jerusalem no longer existed, and none of the expeditions of the fourteenth century succeeded in re-establishing it.
But in the very interior of the kingdom the power of the king was checked by numerous obstacles, and the sovereignty belonged less to the king than to the body of feudatories whose power was centered in the High Court, composed of vassals and rear-vassals.

 James Sanford reviews Kingdom of Heaven
While "Kingdom" is a sad reminder that the distrust, misunderstandings and misconceptions that have marred relations between the Eastern and Western worlds are nothing new, Scott and writer William Monahan deserve credit for assembling a picture that doesn't strain to draw parallels between these historical events and the current fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The movie's darkest figures are haughty, glory-hungry Guy de Lusignan (Marton Csokas), husband of Jerusalem's princess Sibylla (Eva Green), and the almost maniacal nobleman Reynald de Chatillon (Brendan Gleeson).
Both men are eager to wage war against the Saracens, led by Saladin (Ghassan Massoud) -- "God wills it!" is Guy's battle cry -- even though Jerusalem's King Baldwin (an unbilled and unrecognizable Edward Norton, in a memorable performance) and his level-headed adviser, Tiberias (Jeremy Irons), dream of peaceful co-existence with their Islamic neighbors.
