Saladin's Trebuchet

 

This is a miniature replica of a real trebuchet that is on display outside The Citadel in Cairo Egypt. I call it Saladins Trebuchet but that's just because the Citadel itself was originally built by Saladin in the 12th century. Since then the fortress has been added to, improved and rebuilt over the course of many centuries. But, the trebuchet is well placed because it was a powerful weapon that could destroy the walls of a fortress like the Citadel.

If you want to learn more about the Citadel fortress in Egypt I do have pictures and more information on my other website here: The Citadel Medieval Fortress
