Near the end of the first circle, Dante entered the Hall of Kings. Inside are the virtuous pagan shades of famous poets like Homer and Ovid, famous heroes like Hector of Troy and noble rulers like Caesar and Saladin. Dante came face to face with Saladin's soul and remembered why he was fighting in the Crusades. All of the souls in this part of the Inferno are simply statues, however. Beyond this hall lied King Minos' Court.
- Souls - Extra souls can be obtained by destroying the statues.
