The First Crusade was launched in 1095 by Pope Urban II with the dual goals of liberating the sacred city of Jerusalem and the Holy Land from Muslims and freeing the Eastern Christians from Muslim rule. The Second Crusade was launched in 1147 under the Kings Louis VII and Conrad III respectively but failed to win any major victories, launching a failed pre-emptive siege of Damascus, an independent city that would soon fall into the hands of Nur ad-Din, the main enemy of the Crusaders .The Third Crusade was issued by Gregory VIII in 1187, after Jerusalem had been recaptured by the armies of Islam under Saladin. Philip and Richard with their armies crossed the sea and, after stops at Sicily and Cyprus, landed at Acre, where they joined the siege, and the city surrendered in July 1191. Philip departed for France in August, leaving Richard in control. The terms of the surrender of Acre included a prisoner exchange and the return, by Saladin, of the True Cross, which he had captured with Jerusalem in 1187.
