Storyboard of the Crusades, focusing specifically Nicholas of Cologne.

Storyboard Text

  • Nicholas of Cologne goes to the Pope
  • Okay, so I know that several trained armies didn't work and we've basically lost, but, hear me out here, we send children to fight their armies instead? Huh?  It's genius, right?
  • The Pope tells them to go home.
  • That might just be the dumbest idea I've ever heard. Children? Really? Go home Nick.
  • A separate group goes anyways, fails
  • In 1212, as a dying breath of the Crusades, a German youth named Nicholas of Cologne brought thousands of children to the pope, saying that God had inspired him to lead the children to the holy land.
  • The Pope tells Nicholas and the children to go home. 
  • At about the same time, a group of twenty thousand French children sailed for the holy land. Two ships went down at sea, and the remainder of the children were sold into slavery upon reaching North Africa.
