Bohemond I of Antioch

Bohemond I, also spelled Bohemund or Boamund, (c. 1058 – 3 March 1111), Prince of Taranto and Prince of Antioch,[1] was one of the leaders of the First Crusade as he led the whole Crusader army until the conquest of Antioch.

Bohemond was born in San Marco Argentano, Calabria, as the eldest son of the Norman nobleman Robert Guiscard, Duke of Apulia and Calabria, and his first wife Alberada of Buonalbergo. He was christened "Mark" at his baptism, but was nicknamed Bohemond (after the legendary giant Buamundus gigas), by his father due to his size as an infant. [2]

The Norman monarchy he founded in Antioch survived those in both England and Sicily.[2]
