The First Crusade - Full Documentary

The First Crusade ran from 1096 to 1099. It began when the Byzantine Emperor asked for military support from the West against the Seljuk Turks. 

This call was met with an enthusiastic popular response across all social classes in western Europe. Crowds of predominantly poor Christians were the first to respond, but after they were defeated members of the high nobility and their followers embarked in late summer 1096 and arrived at Constantinople between November and April the following year. 

The crusaders liberated Jerusalem on 7 July 1099. After this the majority of the crusaders returned home.

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!
