Crusader Cities

Lordship of the Ibelins 1220s. It had fallen to Saladin after the Horns of Hattin (6/8/1187).

The palace of Beirut was rich in mosaics and marbles in Byzantine work. It belonged to John I and then his daughter, heiress Isabella d’Ibelin.

"For my part, I adhere to the maxim of antiquity: The throne is a glorious sepulchre."
