"Empires: Holy Warriors - Richard the Lionheart and Saladin" is a 2005 documentary.
The friendship between England's King Richard the Lionhearted and the Islamic conqueror Saladin remains one of the most unusual and fascinating relationships in the history of Western civilization. While the Christian monarch and the Muslim sultan were divided by the religious beliefs that led them into opposing sides during the 12th-century Crusades, the rivals shared a mutual admiration based on respect for each other's military prowess and bravery--so much so that Saladin offered the use of his physician and horses when Richard was wounded in battle.
"Empires: Holy Warriors - Richard the Lionheart and Saladin" directed by Richard Bedser.

Great documentary!04 September 2012
I have seen this one a few times, and I can say that it is a very good one, well acted, fully informative, and the information is accurate. It is nice to see such documentary covered by the PBS, because if it was done by Historia, the actual information provided would be super-weak in comparison....
I thought that someone would have seen it by now.03 August 2012
