A ship loaded with corn arrives for the Crusader forces outside of Acre, giving the Crusaders hope and allowing the siege to continue. Even more welcome than the food, though, is news that King Philip II Augustus of France and King Richard I Lionheart of England are on their way.

King Philip II will arrive at Acre the next month.
