and not Christian, and there is no reason to suppose Yelü Dashi was ever called Prester John. However, several vassals of the Kara-Khitan practiced Nestorian Christianity, which may have contributed to the legend, Silverberg, pp. 12–13 as well as the possibility that the Europeans, who were unfamiliar with the concept of Buddhism, assumed that the leader must have been Christian. Jackson, pp. 20–21 Whatever the case may

be, the defeat encouraged the Crusaders and inspired a notion of deliverance from the East, and it is possible Otto recorded Hugh's confused report to prevent complacency in the Crusade's European backers; according to his account no help could be expected from a powerful Eastern king.

These visits apparently from the Saint Thomas Christians of India cannot be confirmed, evidence of both being secondhand reports.

However, little links this figure, supposedly active in the late 1st century, to the Prester John legend beyond the name. Silverberg, pp. 35–39. Whatever

its influences, the legend began in earnest in the early 12th century with two reports of visits of an Archbishop of India to Constantinople and of a Patriarch of India to Rome at the time of Pope Callixtus II (1119–1124).

contact with each other in 1520, Prester John was the name by which Europeans knew the Emperor of Ethiopia. Silverberg, pp. 188–189. The Ethiopians, though, had never called their emperor that. When ambassadors from Emperor Zara Yaqob attended the Council of Florence in 1441, they were confused when council prelates insisted on referring to their monarch as Prester John. They tried to explain that nowhere in Zara Yaqob's list of regnal

names did that title occur. However, their admonitions did little to stop Europeans from calling the King of Ethiopia Prester John. Silverberg, p. 189. Some writers who used the title did understand it was not an indigenous honorific; for instance Jordanus seems to use it simply because his readers would have been familiar with it, not because he thought it authentic.
