Balian of Ibelin travels to Jerusalem during the crusades of the 12th century, and there he finds himself as the defender of the city and its people.
The filmmakers built real working siege weapons for the movie.
Squire: Clear the road, if you will.
While Balian is in Sicily, some crusaders can be seen carrying a banner with the arms of Castile and Leon quartered. However, in the 1180s Castile and Leon were separate kingdoms; it wasn't until 1230 when they were reunited and the quartered banner adopted.
