Who's Who in Medieval History and the Renaissance

Tancred de Hauteville

c. 1072-1112




Prince Tancred (known in French as Tancrède de Hauteville) was a Norman lord of Southern Italy who was among the first noblemen to join the Crusades in 1096. He saw considerable success on the campaign, and after the fall of Jerusalem he acquired the title Prince of Galilee. While his uncle Bohemond was imprisoned by Turks, Tancred served as regent of Antioch in his place, then controlled the region permanently when Bohemond returned to Europe.
