In 1095 the Byzantine emperor, Alexios l, wrote a letter to pope Urban II- leader of the catholic church- asking for help to defeat the Turks.
He promised that anyone who made the journey (called a Crusade) would have all their sins forgiven.
As they traveled through Europe, members of the Peasant's Crusade attacked towns and villages looking for foods and valuables.
In 1099 the professional soldiers and knights of the 1st Crusade began to arrive in the Holy Land.
The leader of the 1st Crusade then divided up the Holy land between them - creating four small kingdoms.
