The Crusades were a series of religious wars between Christians and Muslims to gain control over places considered sacred by both parties.
A total of eight important Crusades took place between 1096 and 1291.
These were bloody, violent and often ruthless conflicts by European Christians to conquer the sacred land of the Muslim.
