  • Because children were supposedly innocent, people thought children would have a good chance to win.
  • Voyage to Palestine
  • The children had no food, money, or shelter. They would beg villagers for provisions. However, they had no idea where Jerusalem was.
  • The End of the Children's Crusade 
  • When the got to the Mediterranean, they waited at Marseille for the waters to part for them,and form a path across.
  • Some of the children headed back home, while others waited there unsure of what to do. Eventually,Muslim merchants offered to take them to Palestine on their ships. But the ones that went home, never found their parents again.
  • Over 5,000 children left Marseille, but none of them made it to Palestine. Some ships were lost at sea, others unloaded in the East, and sold them as slaves.
