Battle of Jaffa (27 July -8 August 1192) : Fighting Saracens

The Battle of Jaffa took place during the Crusades, as one of a series of campaigns between the army of Sultan Saladin (Ṣalāḥ al-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūb) and the Crusader forces led by King Richard I of England (known as Richard the Lionheart). It was the final battle of the Third Crusade, after which Saladin and King Richard were able to negotiate a truce. Although the Crusaders did not regain possession of Jerusalem, Christian pilgrims were permitted entry into the city, and the Crusaders were able to retain control of a sizable strip of land stretching from Beirut to Jaffa. In this battle we have Sunjade/Supreme crusaders and Biplant Saracens. Enjoy !

Bective Abbey is set in beautiful countryside beside a lovely old bridge over the River Boyne. It was founded in 1147 by the King of Meath and was the second Cistercian abbey built in Ireland after Mellifont Abbey. It was so important that Hugh de Lacy, the most powerful Norman knight who built the nearby Trim Castle was buried here in 1195.
