Legends of Prester John circulated in Europe from the 12th through 17th centuries. The stories told of a Nestorian Christian nation beyond the boundaries of the European world; over time the location of the kingdom moved from India to Central Asia to Ethiopia. The land contained unbelievable riches and creatures, and bordered Earthly Paradise. Because the country was believed to be on the other side of the Muslim world, many European hoped Prester John would be a valuable ally in their quest to end Muslim rule of the Holy Land.
