The Final Battle

Acre, the last Crusader stronghold in the Holy Land, fell in July 1291 CE to the Mamluks Muslims. It is seen by many historians as the end of the Crusades.

After 1291 the Church continued to organize minor campaigns with limited goals. These were mainly to push Muslims out of Europe or to conquer Pagan lands in the north.

By the 16th century these mini campaigns had come to an end due to the declining power and influence of the Church.

the grand masters of the Templars, Hospitallers and Teutonic Knights were present at this final heroic battle.
