      "In part Baldwin's choice was governed by necessity, as Guy was the only unmarried adult male of sufficiently high birth then present in Palestine. Guy's connection with Poitou - a region ruled by Angevin King Henry II of England - may also have been a factor, for with Capetian France in disarray, England's importance as an ally was increased."
