FIRST CRU­SADE

History of War - - THE NORMANS -

Nor­mans are at the fore­front of mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions to take the Holy Land for Chris­ten­dom, and they help carve out the prin­ci­pal­ity of An­ti­och in 1098. Tan­cred and Robert

II, Duke of Nor­mandy are prominent Nor­man cru­saders who cap­ture Jerusalem in 1099.

The Siege of An­ti­och leads to the es­tab­lish­ment of a Nor­man-led prin­ci­pal­ity in 1098 that en­dures un­til 1268. This is longer than Nor­man rule in Eng­land or Si­cily
