About the Ayyubid Warriors:

An-Nasir Salah ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub, known as Saladin (1137 – 1193), was the founder of the Ayyubid dynasty. Under Saladin, the Ayyubid army enacted victories against the Crusaders. The army comprised an interesting mix of warriors and equipment – a result of Saladin recruiting from a wider spectrum than was normal. The particular success of the Ayyubid cavalry came from intense practice and good quality material. In battle these mounted soldiers employed a combination of tactics, using archery from a distance, and the lance or sword at closer range. Light cavalry were noted for their speed and maneuverability – which proved effective in ambushing enemy convoys.
