Follow me on:

He was one of the most important figures of the First Crusade, leading a powerful army along with his brothers Eustace and Baldwin. In the Holy Land, with the help of Baldwin, he was one of the first Europeans to gain control of lands of his own; and after the crusaders captured Jerusalem, he became ruler of the city. He was Godfrey of Bouillon.
