The Talisman is a novel by Walter Scott that takes place at the end of the Third Crusade, mostly in the camp of the Crusaders in Palestine.

The main characters are the Scottish knight Kenneth, who is a fictional character version of David of Scotland, Earl of Huntingdon, who did in fact return from the third Crusade in 1190, Richard the Lionheart, Saladin, and Edith Plantagenet, a relative of Richard.
