Description

Here's a piece I started about a year ago but never got the chance to finish it until now.

Its my own depiction of the Battle of Cresson which happened just before Saladin's victory at Hattin in 1187 during his campaign against the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem.

The knight in focus is the Grandmaster of the Templars, Gerard de Ridefort, who was one of only a few that survived the battle.

If you're interested you can read about the battle here :-

Cheers!
