The initial push of the Crusades devastated the Holy Land, expelled the Muslim powers, and created diverse Christian kingdoms in the Middle East. The situation in those kingdoms was barely stable and they needed a continuous flow of warriors from Europe to guarantee their survival in front of the Arab armies’ pressure that were fighting to conquer back those territories.
At first, faith had been the main incentive for these warriors, fervent devotes that didn’t hesitate to travel across half-world to fight for their beliefs. But later, a lot of members excluded from the European societies went there for the promise of a future that offered incredible opportunities to those who dare to grab them.
Our miniature can be painted in many different ways and heraldries, but the intricate decorations in the leather greaves make him a very suitable candidate to portray a knight from any of the different states from Medieval Italy.
