Name(s):Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi (Saladin)
Position/Job(s):First sultan of Egypt and Syria, Founder of the Ayyubid dynasty.
What did they do:Led military campaigns against the crusading forces
Why do you like them:Not only is his skill at commanding armies admirable, but his mercy was. For context, when the crusading armies entered Jerusalem, they slaughtered everyone they saw, Jewish, Christian or Muslim. They killed so many of them that it is said the blood was knee high, after that they turned The Aqsa mosque into a stable for their horses. It is also said they would take children from their mothers and bash their heads against the wall, you get it, pretty grim. When saladin finally took back Jerusalem from the invaders, rather than do what they did, He showed mercy to the people living there. He didn't oppress them or anything. Just let them live normally. That's a very impressive thing to do considering what these people did. As for his command skill, I reckon everyone knows about it.
What country are they from or what country did they serve: The egyptian sultanate, i guess.
