Number Two in the Series: The crusader kingdom faced hardship during its first century of existence, working to attract settlers, establish diplomatic relations with neighbors, and resolve internal struggles between nobles, kings and the military. In 1187, Jerusalem fell to Muslim forces and Europe responded by launching a massive new crusade. The failure of that effort reflected larger shifts within Europe that undermined the crusading movement.
