Peter the Hermit's Peasants' Crusaders Clash With Byzantine Forces at Nish Hot

Peter the Hermit's Peasants' Crusade meets Byzantine forces at Nish. His Crusaders have already sacked Semlin and Belgrade, forcing Byzantine troops to flee to Nish, in retaliation for how earlier Crusaders under the command of Walter Sans-Avoir had been treated.

Nish is the regional capital, located southeast of Belgrade, and it's in the direction which the Crusaders are marching as they make their way to Constantinople.

Although Peter and his Crusaders are victorious against the forces protecting Nish and continue moving towards Constantinople, about a quarter of his forces are lost.
