Kerak, north wall overlooking the city. Photo credits: Marielle Gouton. Particularly known for its castle, which it inherited from the time of the Crusades, the city of Kerak [ 1 ]. Its strategic location - a triangular plateau at an altitude of about 1, meters located a few kilometers east of the Dead Sea, has made it an important political and historical site, from the time of the Crusades and at least until the fall of the Mamluks early 16th century.

And even if, from the Ottoman Empire to today, the city has had a less glorious destiny, the thousand years of history medieval, modern and contemporary of Kerak allow to highlight some major issues that the region has could be confronted.

Before the Crusades. If it is at the time of the Crusades that Kerak asserts itself as a particularly important site, it is not unknown for all that. The region seems to have been occupied since the Chalcolithic period. The name of Kerak seems to be inherited from the Moabites who called him "Qir" and Aramaics "Karkha". During the Roman and Byzantine periods, the region sometimes functions as an administrative center, or even beats its own currency.

At the end of the Byzantine Empire and during the Islamic period, the city is surrounded by a wall fortified. At the time of the Crusaders: a particularly strategic site and a castle difficult to take. The Crusaders The site, as we know it today, seems to have been built under Foulques V of Anjou, king of Jerusalem, who seeks to consolidate the territory conquered during the expansionist period of Baldwin I, first king of Jerusalem: it is a question of protecting the kingdom's lines of communication, and of being able to easily encircle and neutralize all rebellion in the Frankish territories.

From its beginnings, the cross city of Kerak is designed for purely geopolitical purposes. It was in that Payen Le Bouteiller, lord of Outre-Jourdain from tobegan the construction of the castle of Kerak to transfer his power which was previously concentrated in Montreal Krak - today Chawbak. This new site gives direct access to the Dead Sea and then to the West Bank, where is the holy city of Jerusalem, then in possession of the Crusaders.

It allows a wide control over the entire region. The construction of the castle lasts from until aroundunder the reign of Philippe de Milly. This is an impressive fortification although simple because it has many natural advantages and seems difficult to take.

The castle is built on a triangular plateau, and its walls follow all along a steep ridge. On the north side of the castle is the entrance, which gives access to the town of Kerak: a deep ditch of about thirty meters separated the city from the castle, but it has been filled since.

The other three sides South, East and West are quite difficult to reach because of the steep slopes. The Crusader's defenses can be seen particularly well on the east side of the castle, whose wall was reinforced by at least three towers and overhanging a glacis [ 2 ]. JPEG - View of the ruins of Kerak. The most notable figure related to the history of Kerak is undoubtedly Renaud de Chatillon, who married in Etiennette de Milly, the "lady of the Crac", heiress of the lord of Jordan Philippe de Milly.

Thus, inseigniory and Kerak enter into his possession. However, Renaud de Chatillon is known to have particularly provoked the Muslims, leading expeditions on the Red Sea or against Mecca. Kerak thus becomes a prime target for Muslims: the castle will be besieged three times in the s.

The first time, in OctoberSaladin besieged the castle, but in December, the royal army of Jerusalem intervened to defend Kerak, forcing the attackers to retreat. In Julythe Muslims undertook a new siege, which failed again because the defenders were able to build effective siege engines during the winter: Saladin, who then decided to concentrate his army on the north side of the castle, must to give up again because the royal army threatens again to come to the aid of Renaud de Chatillon.

The last siege, led by the nephew of Saladin, Sa'd al-Din, in Marchwill this time be successful: indeed, although the defense holds, the heavy defeat of the royal army in Hattin in grythyttan dejting Renaud de Chatillon is killed leaves no hope for Kerak's soldiers to be rescued; the famine finally forced them to capitulate in October-Novemberand legend has it that the Muslims would have left the vanquished free, so much had they shown courage and bravery.

So, after the capitulation of the Crusaders, Kerak becomes Ayyubid. The Ayyubids Inthe territories of Egypt and Syria are divided between members of the Ayyubid family of Saladin. The latter's brother, Al-'Adil, receives part of the current Jordanian territory, and where Kerak plays an important economic and strategic role. Thus, the city hosts a garrison, and becomes a place of storage treasure for example.

The strategic importance of Kerak can be seen particularly well in when, following the capture of the Egyptian port of Damietta by the Crusaders [ 3 ]the Ayyubids offer to exchange the port of Damietta for a truce of thirty years and the former territories of the Latin Kingdom including Jerusalemwith the exception of the castles of Kerak and Chawbak: now, the Crusaders refuse the offer, especially because Kerak is not returned to them.

And the Muslims, for their part, do not want to see the castle fall into the hands of their enemies, because that would mean that Syria and Egypt would be separated again by Jordan.Slideshare uses cookies to improve functionality and performance, and to provide you with relevant advertising.

In he faced a major crisis with violent clashes between rival forces leading in late to the resignation of President Ali Saleh, the country's president for 30 years. The Yemeni revolution is a large-scale protest movement that began in early and is ongoing.

Yemen is one of the most corrupt countries in the world corruption index 2. Even though the tensions following the Yemeni crisis are blurred, Yemen remains today, in danger of civil war: this risk of war is due to the fact that the Saleh clan retains control of many military forces and that his party of the ousted president, the People's General Congress, continues to oppose the Joint Meeting of the Former Opposition Parties.
