HENRY II - the last ruling and first titular King of Jerusalem, he lost his power after the Siege of Acre in 1291. This battle was one of the most pivotal in the Crusades and cemented the loss of Crusader control in Jerusalem to the Mamluks (Kurdish Muslim Dynasty under Saladin - first Sultan of Egypt and Syria). He also ruled over Cyprus for the duration of his career.
