Summary: "Born in twelfth-century France and bred for violence, Reynald de Chatillon was a young knight who joined the Second Crusade and rose through the ranks to become the pre-eminent figure in the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem - and one of the most reviled figures in Islamic history. In the West, Reynald has long been considered a minor player in the crusades and dismissed as having been a bloodthirsty maniac ... However, by using contemporary documents and original research, Jeffrey Lee overturns this popular perception and reveals him to be an influential and powerful leader, whose actions in the Middle East had a far-reaching impact that endures to this day"--Publisher's description.
