Egypt is a country in the North East of Africa, better known for its ancient civilisation than its medieval one.

Egypt was a largely Christian nation when it was conquered by Arabs in 641. The Coptic church continued to be significant even under Muslim rule. Over time Egypt became more and more entwined with the Arab world. The Crusade of Alexandria in 1365 led to the sacking of that city, and probably contributed to stronger identification with the Arabs.
