His mother Eithne was of Leinster extraction and was descended from an illustrious provincial king. To these powerful connections as much as to his piety and ability, he owed the immense influence he possessed.

The destruction of the army left the territories vulnerable and Saladin was able to retake Jerusalem and most of the territory of the Crusaders, leaving only Tyre, Tripoli and Antioch. These were, however, enough of a foothold for reinforcement and the Third Crusade to enter the Mideast.
