The city of Ashkelon's name was "corrupted" or altered to "Ascalon" by the Crusaders of the First Crusade. The ancient city was decimated in the Battle of Ascalon some time in the early 13th century at the close of the First Crusade and ultimately destroyed towards the end of the 13th century creating an interesting and appropriate parallel between it and the fictional Ascalon.
