Nuruddin was the son of Imad ad-Din Zangi, the Turkish ruler of Aleppo and Mosul who was a devoted enemy of the crusaders. After the assassination of his father in 1146, Nuruddin began a continuous war against the crusaders. He sought to make alliances with his Muslim neighbours to strengthen the Muslim front against their crusaders.

The son of Imad Uddin Zangi, the ruler of Syria.

After his father's death in 1146 he took control of Syria, while Iraq fell to the elder brother Saifuddin. The earlier exploits of the reign of Nuruddin were in continuance of the Holy war, which his father had waged against the Latin Christians of Palestine. Eddessa was taken by his father. The recovery of Edessa was the object of the second Crusade in 1148 undertaken by the Christians under Louis VII of France, but was successfully failed by the Muslim.

Resuming the offensive Nuruddin invaded Antioch and in the following battle slew prince Raymond. After this the forts of Aintab, Tallbasher, Ravenden etc., fell without resistance. The death of Baldwin III in 1162 removed all the obstacles and now Nurddin became the absolute master of Syria, Egypt and Iraq.

Nuruddin made Damascus this capital from where he ruled for 27 years
