Saladin, ruler of the kingdoms surrounding the Latin state of Jerusalem, is brought to attack the Christians in the Holy Land by the sacking of a convoy of Muslim pilgrims, a group which included his sister. In a short campaign against odds, Jerusalem is taken and almost the entire Middle East is in Muslim hands. Crusade is called again in Europe, and the combined forces of the French king, German emperor, and English king form the 3rd Crusade, under the leadership of Richard the Lionheart of England. Although Accre is taken by the Crusaders, Saladin succeeds in preventing the recapture of Jerusalem, and in the end negotiations between himself and Richard (who Saladin admires as the only honorable leader) leave the Holy Land in Moslem hands.Written by

Now we start to see this as a real challenge to Kingdom of heaven. Why?
Historically the Muslims didn't know about siege towers as was shown in Kingdom of heaven mainly because the Muslims are more used to open fields of war so there was no necessity for too much siege engines.
It is true the the Chritsians when they entered El - Kods they killed most of the population. That's why it was very hard to see the majority of the inhabitants in Kingdom of heaven was dressed in Arabic style.
It's true that El Naser Salah el Dine has his own historical inaccuracy but it's far more better than trying to put through your mind that the Muslims had only Salah el Dine as a great leader....& that Salah el Dine is one of a kind for the Muslims....as Kingdom of heaven tries to show.
