Many childeren who went on the crusade, perished on the way due to heatstroke, lack of water, and lack of food. Others just bailed out of the crusade.
When merchants saw the childeren, they asked them if "they needed a ride". Well, when the childeren said yes, who knew it would end up so badly! Most of the childeren were sold off into slavery😬 That's why people say stranger danger...😓
Many parents were upset that Nicholas had led their childeren off to who knows where. They blamed it on his father which ended up getting hanged.😬
