Historical background

HOLY LAND - principality of Antioch - Bohemond III


Antioch was the first major city to fall into the hands of the Crusaders in 1098. Bohemond of Taranto and Robert Guiscard, the Normans, were formed first principality. Raymond II of Poitiers, Prince of Antioch, was killed in 1149 at the end of the Second Crusade. Bohemond III, his son, succeeded him under the regency of Constance, his mother, the daughter of Bohemond II, between 1149 and 1163. After the capture of Jerusalem in 1187, Bohemond signed a truce with Saladin and made peace with the Muslims from 1192. He annexed Tripoli in 1187 and had to fight against the rise of Armenian kings. Raymond, his eldest son, died in 1197. When Bohemond III died in 1201, was an implacable struggle against his descendants, Raymond Roupen said the Armenian, his little son, and Bohemond IV, the youngest son of Bohemond III.
