Why was the third crusade a failed attempt for Richard 1st?
The primary objective of the third crusade was to recapture Jerusalem from the Muslims. On the way to Jerusalem they encountered resistance from Salahidin's forces but managed to capture several coastal towns in the holy land. By the time the crusades reached Jerusalem, they had lost too many soldiers and realized that even if they captured Jerusalem (which was unlikely), they would not be able to defend it against a Muslim counterattack. Because of this they retreated.
Which crusades were the most significant?
Many historians place the the first and third crusades as the most significant. The reasons are as follows: 1. The First Crusade in 1096 because it was a well organized military expedition under the leadership of Godfrey of Bouillon. This crusade drove the Moslems from part of Palestine and established a Christian kingdom in the Holy Land and gained control of Jerusalem; and 2. The Third Crusade that began in 1189. This crusade was led by three kings. They were Frederich Barbarossa, Philip Augustus of France, and Richard the Lion Hearted of England. Although this crusade failed to capture Jerusalem, King Richard persuaded the Muslim leader Saladi to grant safe passage to Jerusalem.

What wars between Muslims and Christians to take Jerusalem?
SOME of the wars called the "Crusades" involved the taking and retaking of Jerusalem. The Crusades were different wars with different characters. One, the Fourth, have nothing to do with the Muslims at all, but concerned the capture of Constantinople by the Latins from the Greeks. Another was an invasion of Egypt (Muslim, but definitely not where one would find Jerusalem). Of eight, sometimes nine, designated Crusades, only the First (where the Crusaders took Jerusalem)and Third (where the Muslims held on to it) were significant on that basis. Other so-called "Crusades" (e.g., the Albigensian Crusade) were actually purges of heretical sects from within Catholic territory. One also occasionally hears the word "crusade" used to mean a non-military collective struggle for some desirable social change, for example: "Crusade for Literacy" or "Crusade for Childhood Vaccination." The Muslim version of Crusade is "Jihad." Both terms have a) a military meaning and b) a nonmilitary one, which the professing group insists is the "real" meaning and which the opposing group prefers to ignore.

The Third Crusade was the result of the recapture of Jerusalem by?
The Third Crusade's resulted in a failure to recapture Jerusalem. Saladin still had control, but there was a treaty made between Saladin with Richard the Lionheart for anyone to be allowed to visit the holy land of Jerusalem. It resulted in the capture of the cities of Acre and Jaffa. The crusaders however failed to recapture Jerusalem. Saladin was forced to sign a treaty which guaranteed safe passage to Jerusalem for unarmed traders and pilgrims.

Did Muslim massacres prompt the Crusades?
This might not answer your question but its good to have background information to better understand your question. Got to the link below. The First Crusade. 1096-1099. It was prompted by the massacre of 3000 Christian Pilgrams in Jerusalem. The Second Crusade. 1147-1149. It was caused by the fall and massacre of the city Edessa. It was taken by the Turks, also called the Muslims, and they slaughtered the entire population. The Third Crusade. 1189-1192. It was caused by the capture of Jerusalem in 1187 by the Sultan of Egypt. The Fourth Crusade. 1202-1260. A Pope, Innocent III, revived the plans of Pope Urban II and sought once more to unite the forces of Christendom against Islam. The Fifth-Ninth Crusades. Not much in importance.
When did saladin take Jerusalem in the third crusade?
Saladin took Jerusalem in the Second Crusade, specifically in October of 1187. In the Third Crusade, Saladin started off in control of Jerusalem and Richard the Lionheart abandoned his marches on Jerusalem upon signing the Treaty of Jaffa. As a result, Saladin never lost control of Jerusalem during the Third Crusade and never had to retake it.
