ABSTRACT
The article discusses the lead-up to the Battle of Hattin on July 4, 1187. Its origins date from 1174 with the death of Nur ad-Din in Damascus and King Almaric in the Kingdom of Jerusalem. When the child king died in 1186, the throne fell to Guy of Lusignan, who had married into the royal line. In 1186 Guy rose to the throne of Jerusalem based on his wife's blood ties to the two previous kings. However, many Crusaders considered him a coward as he had shown hesitancy in battle against Saladin at the earlier Siege of Kerak.
