Bohemond I, Prince of Antioch and a leader of the First Crusade, dies. Historians believe that Bohemund probably joined the Crusaders in order to acquire land and power in the east, a motive that wasn't that unusual among the nobles in the Crusades.

Regardless, Bohemund I was successful at this, becoming one of the most important leaders of the Crusader states around Jerusalem.
