Crusader, first King of Jerusalem. He was the younger brother of Godfrey of Bouillon the Potector of the Holy Sepulchre and was supposed to become a priest. In 1096 he joined the first crusade. He followed Tancred of Hauteville and was there when Tancred took Tarsus. He followed the invitation of Thoros of Edessa who later adopted him. After Thoros death he became the first count of Edessa. Godfrey died in July 1100 and on Christmas Day of the same year Baldwin was crowned King of Jerusalem. (bio by: Lutetia)
