Conrad of Montferrat Takes up Crusading Banner After Arriving in Tyre

Tyre Triumphal Arch
Source: Wikipedia

Conrad of Montferrat arrives at Tyre to take up the Crusading banner. Conrad had intended to land at Acre, but finding it under Saladin's control already, he moves on to Tyre where he takes over from another Christian leader who is far more timid.

Saladin had captured Conrad's father, William, at Hattin and offers a trade, but Conrad prefers to shoot at his own father rather than surrender.

Tyre is the only Crusader kingdom that Saladin is unable to defeat, and it will last for another hundred years.
