the Battle of Hattin

On 4 July 1187, the era of the Crusades, and holy wars — waged for two centuries – between Christian coming from the West and Muslims hailing from all over the Middle East had reached a point of boil.

In the most significant battles of the Crusader period, the Battle of Hattin, the Muslim armies under Saladin captured or killed the vast majority of the Crusader forces, removing their capability to wage war. The destruction of the Kingdom followed its defeat at this Battle.

A reenactment of the Battle of Hattin, will take place in Israel, on its 831th anniversary (July 5 – 7, 2018), as it does every year, and include a two-day journey culminating in the reenactment of the battle itself.

The Regnum Hierosolymitanum group for history reenactment along with other groups from Israel Germany, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine reconstruct the events surrounding the Battle of Hattin in the actual landscape and in conditions similar to those prevailing at the time.

This project is based on significant academic and archaeological research carried out on the battle itself and the location.

The Horns of Hattin march is a living historical event, the spokesperson said. All attendees actively participate in the reenactment and are assigned to one of two armies: King of Jerusalem Guy de Lusignan or Salah ad-Din.
