Synopsis:
Saladin, the Kurdish founder of the Ayyubid Dynasty, conquered Jerusalem in 1187 and repelled the Crusaders. Though England’s Richard I later defeated him, Saladin’s legend has become enshrined in European as well as Middle Eastern lore.

Sir Hamilton Gibb produced this short biographical account by drawing from two chronicles written by well-placed contemporaries of the fabled leader. Meticulously annotated, Gibb’s classic is an essential reference for historians as well as an excellent introduction to a fascinating historical figure.

Book Description: Saladin, the Kurdish founder of the Ayyubid Dynasty, ruled Egypt and Syria, conquered Jerusalem in 1187, repelled the Crusaders, and prompted their resurgence in the Third Crusade. Saladin’s chivalry and impeccable honor would become enshrined in European as well as Muslim culture, influencing a long line of poets and historians. In this comprehensively researched biography, Sir Hamilton Gibb draws on two contemporary chroniclers, Baha’ ad-Din ibn Shaddad (d. 1234) and ‘Imad ad-Din al-Isfahani (d. 1201) to produce the definitive work on Saladin’s life.
