Battle of Ashkelon

Engraving by C.W. Sharpe, based on a painting of the same title by Gustav Dore.

The Fatimid army raised to relieve Jerusalem was routed by a surprise dawn attack by the outnumbered forces under the command of Godfrey. The petty rivalry between the Princeps and Raymond of Toulouse prevented the surrender of Ashkelon.
