Splitting off from the main Crusading force, Tancred of Hauteville captures Tarsus. A grandson of Robert Guiscard and nephew of Bohemund of Taranto, Tancred will never fully control the city.

Before the end of the month, Baldwin of Boulogne (later Baldwin I of Jerusalem) will take it from him before moving on to Antioch.
