The Mamluk Siege of Acre, 1291

Acre is a port city on the Mediterranean coast, located in modern Israel. During the First Crusade, it was captured by the Crusaders in 1104 by Baldwin I of Jerusalem and was a part of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem. By 1130, the city was one of the largest in the region, with over 25,000 inhabitants.

It remained in Crusader hands until 1187, when it was captured by Saladin without a fight after his massive victory over the Crusaders at the Battle of Hattin. In 1189, it was besieged again by King Guy de Lusignan, supported by reinforcements from the city-state of Pisa, and in 1191 the city was back in Crusader hands again.

The Mamluk sultan Al-Ashraf Khalil laid siege to the city of Acre in 1291, to put a permanent end to Crusader presence in the Levant. Take the reins of control over the Mamluk army and lead the Muslim army to victory once and for all!


Our wise Sultan Khalil has decided to recapture the city of Acre from the Crusaders, to put an end to their unwelcome presence once and for all. The city of Acre is a wealthy trading city, with a large port and harbor that makes it easy for Crusaders to receive reinforcements and fresh European armies. Its walls are thick and towers heavily garrisoned, which will make this siege long and difficult.

Our troops have reaffirmed their faith in Islam, hence we shall not suffer the construction of the infidels’ houses of worship in our army camp. We do not consume alcohol and other intoxicants, so we shall refrain from the brewing and consumption of ale. Our army has many capable workmen who can build weapons – these can be sold for money to pay our troops.

Bring Acre back into the hands of the Muslim faithful, and protect our people from these foreign invaders for good. Expect many losses, as the enemy is commonly armed with the devilish Frankish bow – capable of penetrating the armor of our light Arabian troops. Nonetheless, we will raise a massive host and unleash destruction on the infidel once and for all!
