Count Raymond III of Tripoli is named regent of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. King Amalric I has died and his son, Baldwin IV, is too young to rule on his own.

Raymond III is Amalric's nearest living male relative and is named regent, allowing him to rule until Baldwin reaches maturity.

Raymond is not a popular choice — although supported by many barons, the Hospitallers, and others, he is opposed by the Templars and other influential families such as the Lusignans. These divisions will plague the Crusader states and contribute to their eventual downfall.
