The First Crusade - Episode 7: Godfrey of Bouillon's Departure for the East

Real Crusades History #11
In part 7 of my look at the First Crusade, we look at the departure of Hugh of Vermandois for the Holy Land, as well as the departure of Godfrey of Bouillon and his army shortly after that. Their journey will bring them to Constantinople, where they will come face to face with the Byzantine Emperor Alexius Comnenus.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
