Charge! Orlando Bloom takes to the saddle in Kingdom of Heaven   


Early in the year 1148 AD, the King's of Europe commissioned a second crusade to return to the holy lands and assist the Crusader’s still present there, with the struggle against the Muslim's. 


The naval fleet arrived on the Syrian coast at the port of Acre and disembarked 50,000 men (40,000 infantry and 10,000 cavalry). This force was under the command of two of Europe's great Kings, Conrad of Germany and Louis of France. Muslim positions in the surrounding area were fortified and all sources of water along the Crusader’s route were drained, blocked up or poisoned.
