The Battle of Montgisard, 25th November 1177

EDITORS COMMENTS
captures a pivotal moment in history with its grandeur and attention to detail. Painted by Charles-Philippe Lariviere in the mid-19th century, this oil on canvas print transports us back to the medieval era. The scene depicts Baldwin IV the Leper, King of Jerusalem, leading a valiant Christian force against Saladin's army during the Crusades. Despite being outnumbered, Baldwin's determination shines through as he rallies his knights templars and archers into battle. The painting showcases their chainmail armor glinting under the Mediterranean sun as they fiercely defend their homeland. Intriguingly, we see Albert, Bishop of Bethlehem, standing beside Baldwin. His presence symbolizes not only religious support but also highlights the significance of this holy war fought for control over Palestine. One cannot help but be drawn to an iconic relic at the center of it all - the true cross. Its presence serves as a reminder that faith played an integral role in motivating these brave soldiers. Displayed at Château de Versailles in France since its creation, this masterpiece evokes both admiration and awe for those who appreciate historical battles and medieval artistry alike. It is a testament to human resilience and sacrifice amidst conflict. Lariviere's meticulous brushwork brings life to each figure on this vast canvas measuring 314x563 cm. As we gaze upon "The Battle of Montgisard" we are transported back
