Count Fulk V of Anjou is Ambushed by Muslim Forces

Imad ad-Din Zengi

An army under the command of Count Fulk of Anjou, King of Jerusalem, is ambushed by Muslim forces commanded by Imad ad-Din Zengi. He had come to the aid of the County of Tripoli because Muslim forces from Damascus had invaded and the local Christians were unable to put up an effective defense.

Pons, Count of Tripoli, was killed earlier, and Count Fulk is forced to take refuge in the Crusader castle of Montferrand which Zengi had been besieging. Unable to get help in time, Fulk surrenders Montferrand to Zengi in return for the freedom of all the Crusaders there.
