Summary
According to tradition, the First Crusade began at Pope Urban II's instigation and culminated in July 1099, when western European knights liberated Jerusalem. But what if the First Crusade's real catalyst lay far to the east of Rome? Countering nearly a millennium of scholarship, Peter Frankopan reveals the First Crusade's untold history
Summary
Argues that the true instigator of the First Crusade was in fact Emperor Alexios I Komnenos of the Byzantine Empire, who in 1095, with his realm under siege and on the point of collapse, begged the pope for military support
