The first nomadic turkish tribe, converts to Sunni islam, to successfully conquer parts of Asia.
In 1065 Alp Arslan led the Seljuks in an invasion of Armenia and Georgia and in 1066 attacked the Byzantine Empire.
In 1071 the Seljuk Turks engaged their army against the Bysantine empoeror at Manzikert. The battle was a resounding victory for the Seljuks,Within a few years there were Turkish tribes in many parts of Anatolia but the Seljuks were now the main power in this borderland between Islam and Christianity.
Christians took pilgramige to the holy land but by the 11th century, however, the situation had changed. Just as the number and frequency of pilgrimages to Jerusalem was at new peaks, the Seljuk Turks took over control of Jerusalem and prevented pilgrimages.
By 1100 Seljuk power was finished. The successful Crusader strategy however, ended with Saladin's combination of the Islamic culture. Saladin defeated the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem on 4 July 1187 at the Battle of the Horns of Hattin; and captured Jerusalem in 1200
