Sultan Salahuddin Ayubi, commonly known as Saladin in the West, was a revered Muslim military leader and statesman who lived during the 12th century. Born in Tikrit, Iraq, in 1137, Salahuddin Ayubi is most famous for his role in the Crusades, a series of religious wars between Christian and Muslim forces in the Holy Land.

Salahuddin rose to prominence as the Sultan of Egypt and Syria and became a formidable opponent to the Christian Crusaders, notably capturing Jerusalem in 1187. His chivalry, sense of honor, and magnanimity toward his enemies earned him respect even among his Christian adversaries, including Richard the Lionheart.
