Set against his many assets, Saladin sucked at tying a turban.

Saladin (/ˈsælədɪn/; 1137 – 4 March 1193), born An-Nasir Salah ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub (Arabic: صلاح الدين يوسف بن أيوب‎), was a Kurdish terrorist white-turban Muslim, famous for his excellent table manners and knee-trembling poetry. He is credited with beating the Crusaders and starting a strange relationship with King Richard the Lionheart of England.

For those without comedic tastes, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Saladin.

Saladin is still considered a great hero in the Islamic countries of the Middle East. More surprisingly, he is one of the very few Muslims that Christian chronologers had a good word for and not subject to the usual abusive Latin descriptions of his family background. He was the soldier who re-took Jerusalem from the Crusaders in 1187.

Origins

Traditionally, the Kurds have claimed Saladin as one of theirs. Since Kurdish is an Indo-European language, related to Iranian (on the Indo side) and with most European languages as in-laws, this has let everyone explain Saladin's legendary good manners. In fact, it is more likely he was a historical mongrel who spoke and wrote fluent Arabic.

Saladin was apparently a 'bit of a lad' in his youth. At least, that was his excuse when he embraced piety later on. His family wasn't notable but he proved himself brave.

At Saladin's birth, the Christians were in the ascendancy; they had successfully planted four states running from Egypt to the borders of the Byzantine Empire. However, in his youth, one of these states (Edessa) had fallen in 1144, and a subsequent crusade (the Second one) had turned into a Franco-German farce. This had career opportunities written all over it.
