                                                      The First Crusade (1096-1099) was the first of a number of crusades that attempted to recapture the Holy Land, called for by Pope Urban the II. During the First Crusade, Christian knights from Europe capture Jerusalem after seven weeks of siege and being massacring the city's Muslim and Jewish religion. The First Crusade was mostly in Levant and Anatolia. The First Crusade was led by Peter the Hermit, Godfrey of Bouillon, Raymond IV, Count of Toulouse, Walter Sans Avior, Bohemond of Taranto, Hugh of Vermandois. The First Crusade happened because Pope Urban II with the primary goal of responding to an appeal from Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Kemnenos, who requested that western volunteers come to his aid and help to repel the invading Saljuq Turks from Anatolia. 

     The First Crusaders captured Nicaea on June 19, 1097. A Crusader army wins a great victory over a Muslim army at Dorylaion on July 1, 1097. The Crusaders defeated a large Muslim Army sent to recapture Antioch. Then, Baldwin of Boulogne took control of Edessa on March 1098. Tens of thousands of people died in the conquest of Jerusalem. The Crusaders themselves suffered; historians estimate that only one in 20 survived to reach the Holy Land. It is estimated the about 1.7 million people died in total.
