This chess set concentrates particularly on the Third Great Crusade led by King Richard I of England, who in 1189 joined King Philip II of France in an effort to recapture the holy city of Jerusalem. King Richard, with 8000 troops seized Cyprus and some cities on the Palestinian coast, but ultimately failed to dislodge the Muslim leader Saladin from Jerusalem.
