Saladin & The Armenian Queen of the Jerusalem Kingdom by Hrair K.

By September 1187, Saladin was besieging the Holy City, and Queen Sibylla personally led the defense, along with Patriarch Eraclius and Balian of Ibelin, who had survived Hattin. Jerusalem capitulated on October 2, and Sibylla was permitted to escape to Tripoli with her daughters.

Queen Sibylla's maternal and paternal lineage was Armenian. She was the Queen of the Jerusalem Kingdom.
