History Documentaries

In 1180, Baldwin the Leper King of Jerusalem has just suffered a major defeat at the Battle of Marj Ayun, inflicted by his great enemy, the Sultan Saladin. Now, Baldwin’s leprosy worsens, while his enemy grows in power. Will the Leper King be able to resist the mounting strength of Saladin, before his own body fails? And will Sibylla be able to take on the burden of her brother’s kingdom? In this documentary, which is part 3 in our 4 part series on the life of Baldwin IV, the Leper King of Jerusalem, we witness the Leper King dealing with some of his greatest challenges yet.
