From there, Saladin captured most of the Crusaders’ major cities and in 1188, even retook Jerusalem. Saladin let the Crusaders escape to Tyre where he unsuccessfully tried twice to lay siege to them. Saladin’s taking of Jerusalem was the spark that began the Third Crusade, led by Richard the Lionheart. Saladin and Richard became fierce rivals, but they had overwhelming respect for each other. Once, when Richard was wounded, Saladin offered him his personal physician. Eventually they made peace over Jerusalem with the Treaty of Ramla in 1192 and Richard left Jerusalem. A year later Saladin, the deliverer of Jerusalem, died. They opened his treasury to pay for the funeral but found no money because Saladin had given it to those in need. Saladin’s tomb is located in the Umayyad Mosque and is one of the most visited tombs in the world.
