1096-1099: How The First Crusade Seized The Holy Land

'1096-1099: How The First Crusade Seized The Holy Land'

In this video medieval historian Matt Lewis explores the numerous logistical challenges faced by the leaders of the First Crusade, and how each was overcome. How was such a diverse military force brought together? How was the crusader army supplied? And how did it finally conquer Jerusalem and the Holy Land?

Using animated maps from Crusader Kings III, we tell the story of the First Crusade, from the disastrous People's Crusade to the creation of the Crusader States in the Holy Land.

This video was made in partnership with Paradox Interactive, the people behind Crusader Kings 3. Right now it's free to play on Steam from September 8th to 12th so be sure to give it a try.
