    Count Philip arrived in Jerusalem on Crusade in time to cooperate with Baldwin IV and the Greeks in a planned invasion of Abuyyud Egypt. He declined the king's offer to act as regent of Jerusalem as well as the overall command of the coming campaign. With that the invasion was abandoned, the Byzantine fleet sailed for home and Philip took his force north, leaving the Kingdom of Jerusalem dangerously exposed to Saladin.
