I think I would go with C.

This makes the most sense, meaning wise. We are comparing 2 similar things here, they never forgave the the crusader and they never forgave the french too.

So the use of 'while' and 'even as' dont make sense.

What is the OA?

IMHO, I think it's B.

D& E are out because 'forgiving' is not parallel to 'absloved'. forgave should be the right word to maintain the parallelism. Between A, B & C - B sounds better to me.

I agree with sdrandom1

The two parts are talking about similar things.
D - similarly to.... is wrong

C IMO
for similaraty the correct idiom used here is 'just like'
