I wandered the cold desert for fourI wandered the cold desert for four nights before the horse archers found me. I had abandoned my mount to the vultures and my armor to the heat of day. As a knight, I was not much of a threat to them.
I thought these men were TurksI thought these men were Turks, come to toy with their prey. But when I could distinguish the riders from the blur of mirage I saw that they were Saracens, the rulers of the Middle East. I had ridden to the Holy Land with the Crusaders from France an Normandy, so I was by all rights these Saracens' enemy.
And that was how I meet SaladinAnd that was how I meet Saladin. The paintings in Europe show Saladin as demonic, barbarian. Yet lie in more chivalrous than any knight I’d met before and prefers the palaces of Damascus to slaughtering Normans in the desert. I had not expected hospitality from Saracens - we Normans execute any armed Arab we capture.

The Franks are dispersed, and the Egyptian army brokenThe Franks are dispersed, and the Egyptian army broken. Saladin has taken his place as governor of the Nile. Any European king would seize this opportunity to eliminate his political enemies. Saladin, however, allowed any Egyptian opposed to his rule to leave the city unharmed.
Saladin has set out to win over the populationSaladin has set out to win over the population. In Cairo, he built mosques and palaces, universities and hospitals. My own countrymen, the sons of Europe, showed naught but treachery, while the Saracens work to dignify their civilization. It is a troubling turn of events and I have difficulty sleeping.
