The Crusades Part 1

In "Chronicles of the Crusades", two stories of two very different crusades are presented to the reader. Both are stories of great kings and nobles on their quest to save Jerusalem, but both are told through very different means, using very different formats. Both, however, are highly informative and representative of the journeys of Crusaders at the time of their writing. Villehardouin, a key player in the Crusade and a key person to those making many of the decisions during the crusade, tells the story in a very factual manner, with little personal details, although his factual accounts often include him as a key character. Much of the story tells of the numerous diversions presented to the army on the Crusade as their attempts to gain allies overseas lead them away from Jerusalem and into enemy hands. However, the journey does show the bravery of many nobles, and the constant efforts of these men to do what was right for God and country. As a personal friend and companion to the king, Joinville's account is much less constrained by time frame and fact, and much more concerned with examples of the king's generosity, wisdom, and kindness.
