The memory of the events leading up to the decisive battle of Hittin (July 4, 1187), where the combined armies of the kingdom of Jerusalem were defeated by Saladin, remained of central importance for the inhabitants of the Latin East in the 1250s. The stories told by survivors of Hittin, mediated through the sympathetic early memories of their families and supporters, led to a further revision of the Old French narrative tradition we know as the Continuations of the twelfth-century chronicle of William of Tyre.
