Bohemond I unites his Crusader army with the Lorrainers under Godfrey De Bouillon.

Bohemond is not very welcome in Constantinople because his father, Robert Guiscard, had invaded the Byzantine Empire and captured the cities of Dyrrhachium and Corfu.

Although the First Crusade has no single military leader, Bohemond I comes closest to being one because he is probably the most important of the various military leaders on the Crusade.
