<i>Bohémond alone mounts the rampart of Antioch</i>
Bohémond alone mounts the rampart of Antioch
Gustave Döre, artist. While Bóhemund engineered the delivery of the city by a tower commander, a small contingent of his men actually scaled the wall and secured control of a postern gate that lead to the fall of everything save the citadel. The following day the army of Abbasid commander Kerbogha invested the city. Facing starvation and a promise of no quarter, Bóhemund threw his threadbare force against the Muslims on 28 Jun 1098. Kerbodha dithered. When he finally brought up his main force its cohesion was shattered by the flight of the troops stationed just beyond the gates.

<i>Discovery of the Holy Lance</i>
Discovery of the Holy Lance
Miniature taken from Sébastien Mamerot's Overseas Passages (ca. 1474).

Raymond became the foremost noble attached to the cult of the Sacred Lance, a relic allegedly found by Peter Bartholomew while rummaging in the Bascilica of St. Peter. (The lance was rumored that which pieced the side of Christ at Golgotha and Peter was led to it by a vision of St. Andrew.) The Franks rallied around it when they went out to break the Abbasid seige of Antioch on 28 Jun 1098. St. Andrew continued to trouble Peter along with that of the recently departed spirit of Bishop Adhémar; the shades confided that Raymond was called to lead the assembled Franks in Antioch and beyond, a classic case of "mission creep." Only rebellion within his own camp caused Raymond to abandon his contest for Antioch and push him, by fits and starts, towards Jerusalem. In Lebanon even this bid for the mantle was dealt a serious blow when Peter died after a voluntary ordeal by fire.

Nur al-Din flees after the battle of al-Buqaia
Nur al-Din was surprised at Al-Buqai'a al-Hosn, almost being captured and suffering a humiliating defeat. Asbridge marks this as the point at which he became truly committed to jihad. He exacted revenge shortly thereafter at Harim.

The conquest of Jerusalem in the First Crusade (1099).
Illustration from a ms. of Guillaume de Tyr, Histoire d'Outremer, Bibliothèque municipale, Lyon; reproduced in Ökumenisches Heiligenlexikon.

Employing a gigantic seige engine, Godfrey managed to breach Jerusalem's northern wall. The Fatimid defense of the city collapsed. This was followed by an indiscriminate slaughter of Jerusalem's inhabitants.
