This database brings together information on men and women who took part in the crusades to the Holy Land in the period between the Council of Clermont (1095) and the end of the Second Crusade (1149). It includes information on their identities, social status, titles, geographical origins, finance, family relationships and affiliations to crusade leaders. It can thus be used to gain information on the lives of individual crusaders, as well as on the composition of individual crusades and their contingents and the contribution made to crusading by different families, countries and regions of Europe.
