10th Crusade: The Last Crusader
This coin is part of series History of the Crusades
After the 10th Crusade there were just some minor crusades left as the spirit of crusading was finished. Increasing Muslim victories and Christian defeats led to the end of the Crusades.
The crusade series will continue with 5 new upcoming coins of the northern crusades. Stay tuned; this isn't the end.
The 10th Crusade is also called the Alexandrian Crusade. The brief Alexandrian Crusade, also called the sack of Alexandria, occurred in October 1365 and was led by Peter I of Cyprus against Alexandria in Egypt. Relatively devoid of religious impetus, it differs from the more prominent Crusades in that it seems to have been motivated largely by economic interests.
