The First Crusade was one of the most extraordinary, bloody and significant episodes in medieval history. It began with an appeal for aid from the Christian Byzantine Empire, threatened by the rising power of the Muslim Seljuk Turks. But when Pope Urban II preached a sermon at Clermont in 1095, the result was unlike anything ever seen before.

You have to remember by the time the crusaders got to Jerusalem. They were already battle hardened basically all of them were skillful knights, letholdus was the first knight to scale the walls, its said he was a massive 7'4"(insane for the time) and just by the sight of him in full plate armor was enough to scare the defenders into retreating off the walls

All parts just means the whole series is shown together in one video instead of 3 or 4 different video clips which is how he always does it. He makes a certain amount or certain section and releases that and then he makes the next section and releases that and so forth and so on until he’s complete. Once he’s done with the last part he just edits the whole thing together and releases it as “All Parts” 😅

@@joellaz9836 well if you want to be very specific that is true. However "dark ages" is a pretty common term used to describe the medieval era as a whole. The phrase "Dark Age" itself derives from the Latin saeculum obscurum, originally applied by Caesar Baronius in 1602 when he referred to a tumultuous period in the 10th and 11th centuries (taken from wikipedia).

Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’” 2 - Exodus 21:20-21 20 “Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, 21 but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property. 3 - Matthew 10:34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” 4 - Numbers 31 : 13 - 18 13 Moses, Eleazar the priest and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp. 14 Moses was angry with the officers of the army - the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds - who returned from the battle. 15 “ Have you allowed all the women to live ? ” he asked them. 16 “ They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the Lord in the Peor incident, so that a plague struck the Lord’s people. 17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man. 5 - Deuteronomy 20:16 However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. 6 - Ezekiel 9 : 5 - 6 5 As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. 6 Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the old men who were in front of the temple. 7 - Isaiah 13 : 15 - 16 15 Whoever is captured will be thrust through; all who are caught will fall by the sword. 16 Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated 8 - Hosea 13 : 16 The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.” 9 - Joshua 6 : 21 - 24 21 They devoted the city to the Lord and destroyed with the sword every living thing in it-men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys. 22 Joshua said to the two men who had spied out the land, “Go into the prostitute’s house and bring her out and all who belong to her, in accordance with your oath to her.” 23 So the young men who had done the spying went in and brought out Rahab, her father and mother, her brothers and sisters and all who belonged to her. They brought out her entire family and put them in a place outside the camp of Israel. 24 Then they burned the whole city and everything in it, but they put the silver and gold and the articles of bronze and iron into the treasury of the Lord’s house. 10 - Zechariah 14 : 2 " I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city."

A lot of older knights went on the Crusades, knowing that they wouldn't be coming back. As for the younger knights, it was the perfect opportunity for those looking for promotions, or looking to earn their knighthood by combat. Common fighters who had been trained for combat, but didn't have titles, went along expecting to come back as "Sir."

You are participating in the lies about the past, being vague and satanic because of how your words are lies. "Looking" and "expecting" are satanic words that are lies because of their satanic numerology, like how expecting is part of a satanic spellcasting ritual because the word begins with ex, and their positions in the alphabet are 5 and 24, which add to 29, and 29 is 2 times 9, which equals 18, which is 6 times 3, or 666, the number of the beast, that we are made to take, or the name of the beast, or the mark of the beast, or not buy and sell, which is written in Revelation chapter 13 verses 17 to 18. The dust of the Earth was lowered and all of what we do is not how the Most High created the doings to be. What we do and what the world is, are both corrupted to amaze and confuse us and make us view Satan as if he is Jah (Psalms chapter 68 verse 4) and using apostrophes, which are unnecessary and only promote confusion and lower dust. You could read about the dust of the earth, who we are and which was lowered for thousands of years, through my account.

Unrelated, but my video was deleted and there was no reason given, do not trust the satanic elites. The account picture for Epic History TV is a pentagram, which is a satanic symbol that is on the image of Baphomet, a demon that Satan worshippers worship. https(colon)//www(dot)kapwing(dot)com/videos/61fd77f1c4434f00ea457bb6 this is also the most recent video which could be seen through my computed (we are not using portals) account, or through this clickable computed text. https(colon)//www(dot)youtube(dot)com/watch?v=BJehvnY_EXo.

@MondoBeno Nope. Knighthood was given in Europe, and not a single foot soldier expected to upgrade to knight. It is a Victorian romantic view about these times, that doesn't fit reality by far. The fairy tales of lone knights fighting for a ladies honor are from the 19th century. To maintain yourself as a knight you had to have three trained horses, full armor, swords in good shape, ten to twenty foot soldiers to look after all your gear, enough food to feed yourself and your personnel, bows, arrows, and other gear for your soldiers etc etc. So they were not travelling from castle to castle as romantics want you to think, they had to own a big estate, with lots of farms, who each delivered a soldier in times of combat. And their tasks as knight were combined with other official tasks like policing, tax collection, local judge, and advisor of the duke, count or bishop they served. And it may surprise you: They had to be married! This caused problems with the knight orders that were founded, by joining them the knight left all his earthly possessions to the order and disinherited his wife and offspring. That is how those orders became extremely rich. The 'marriage' between knight and order had to be at least three years for his family to loose everything, so the order did all they could to keep him alive for those years, often the only reason for a knight to become a member in these harsh circumstances.

This world is rapidly passing away and I hope that you repent and take time to change before all out disaster occurs. Belief in messiah alone is not enough to grant you salvation - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36) if you believed in Messiah you would be following His commands as best as you could. If you are not a follower of Messiah I would highly recommend becoming one. Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life - Revelation 3:20. Contemplate how the Roman Empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. Revelation 17 confirms that it is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years going back to Babylon and before, C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate once you start a relationship with God. Can't get a response from God? Fasting can help increase your perception and prayer can help initiate events. God will ignore you if your prayer does not align with His purpose (James 4:3) or if you are approaching Him when "unclean" (Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 59:2, Micah 3:4). Stop eating food sacrificed to idols (McDonald's, Wendy's etc) stop glorifying yourself on social media or making other images of yourself (Second Commandment), stop gossiping about other people, stop watching obscene content etc

Did muslims in these 400 years massacre christians? Killed children? Like what crusaders did when they took down the muslim cities? You need to know that muslim conquests were strictly organised to not kill innocent people, the killing occurs only during battles (this did not include killing of women even if they were in the battle field, just men), whenever a city is conquered, the people of this city become part of the islamic caliphate people, they can continue their lives normally and practice their faith freely, these things are documented by christian historians not just by muslims, for example, when Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, the second caliph, conquered Jerusalem, it occurred without a drop of blood, the christians in it handed him the keys peacefully and he made contracts with them to not harm them in any way, and he brought back the jews who were exiled from Jerusalem by christians and gave them their rights. But what happened when crusaders invaded muslims lands? You can search about that to see that for example when they took down Jerusalem, they killed any muslim or jew in it, they literally smashed the children heads, historical documents say that the blood in Jerusalem on that day reached knees.

This world is rapidly passing away and I hope that you repent and take time to change before all out disaster occurs. Belief in messiah alone is not enough to grant you salvation - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36) if you believed in Messiah you would be following His commands as best as you could. If you are not a follower of Messiah I would highly recommend becoming one. Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life - Revelation 3:20. Contemplate how the Roman Empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. Revelation 17 confirms that it is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years going back to Babylon and before, C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate once you start a relationship with God. Can't get a response from God? Fasting can help increase your perception and prayer can help initiate events. God will ignore you if your prayer does not align with His purpose (James 4:3) or if you are approaching Him when "unclean" (Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 59:2, Micah 3:4). Stop eating food sacrificed to idols (McDonald's, Wendy's etc) stop glorifying yourself on social media or making other images of yourself (Second Commandment), stop gossiping about other people, stop watching obscene content etc

Actually, his accent is far more rhotic than the Standard British Accent. Initially, it made his narration seem more epic, but it's become quite irritable for me, and that sort of feel doesn't go well with this period of history, either. After watching the video, I am disappointed that many important details are left out, leaving the story not flowing well. For better tellings of medieval history, channels like Kings and Generals and Flash Point History are definitely better. Extra History's series on the First Crusade, while not showing the battles, and only having still images, has a lot of interesting information about the characters and people, that is not mentioned in other tellings of it, from other channels. Kings and Generals and Flash Point History show more maps with battles, with less of a focus on the personal side. This video only provides a brief overview of the First Crusade, probably intended for people who don't already know much about medieval history. For people who already do, Epic History is doing a disservice, and this video probably isn't worth watching. The non-medieval videos are good, though.

This was mostly neutral but still there were some great mistakes, for example at battle of Dorylaeum Turkish forces didn't only used ranged tactics rather charged at crusader lines and tried to breakthrough them. During that time Byzantine armies were a lot lighter than western European knights so Turks miscalculated how much crusader lines could resist with their heavier armours and got caught off guard when crusader reinforcements arrived. Another mistake that after their defeat Turkish forces didn't allow crusader army to freely travel in Anatolia rather kept harrassing them constantly with hit-run attacks, supply route raids and scorched-earth tactics. It was the main reason why the crusader army traveled south away from Turkish obas in central Anatolia. An oba was basicly a mobile city consisting hundreds or even thousands of nomadic tents and vast majority of them were moved into fertile valleys of central Anatolia avoiding heavily populated areas which were also conflict zones like western and southern Anatolia. There weren't many obas in Syria as well simply because of desert conditions. This was why Atabeys who ruled Syrian territories had vast majority Arabic armies not Turkish and none of them ever used Sultan title which is wrongly shown in this video. Using Sultan title would mean they were no longer a part of Seljuk empire therefore they would also loose Seljuk protection and be overthrown by an Arabic Emir easily. However it is true even if Seljuk empire still existed it was extremely divided and couldn't act against crusaders. While some Seljuk Atabeys raised armies and tried to fight against them especially Atabeys who ruled Arabic territories as Antioch, Jerusalem etc were vast majority Arabic and Arabs were really eager to revenge massacres committed. For Turkish perspective the first crusade was a threat which was slightly touched to them..

"Barbaric - but not unique for the age." People seem to leave that part out. Most massacres were answers to other massacres. The crusades were literally an answer to tens of thousands of attacks on villages in Europe that were massacres and mass rapes. It usually took Europeans a century of tens of thousands of mass rapes and murders for them to retaliate though, and now they don't retaliate at all. 115,000 each year, and 1,250,000 rapes each year, targeting indigenous Europeans exclusively - and they do not respond. If anything they throw money and rewards at them.

​@@bot9378Christianity is what the human rights declaration founded itself upon in all societies slavery was practiced but it was the christians that decided to put an end to it. The Christians had a better view of human life than the pagan believers of Rome, Greece and etc. The philosophers of Greek and Roman antiquity “lacked the concept of human dignity,” Harper explains. As Christianity became more widespread, leaders of the church developed more influence, and some rulers even became Christians. This “created the grounds for the development of human rights.” I might have noted that you can find sources for universal human dignity in the Hebrew Bible as well. These advocates of late antiquity were drawing off of principles from both the Old and New Testaments. But starting in the AD 300s, “we find Christians, for the first time, in positions of sovereign control and social leadership, empowered rather than persecuted.” What would they do with that power? We should not exaggerate the extent of their advocacy of human rights, but certain Christian writers did break away from longstanding social practices related to slavery, prostitution, and neglect of the poor. Based on Christian convictions, they sometimes made first-in-world-history arguments against these practices. They did not need to wait for Jefferson or Immanuel Kant to enlighten them. Slavery is the most intriguing case. The institution, in which many people were treated (and mistreated) as commodities, was pervasive in the ancient world. Harper makes the uncomfortable but fair point that the Scripture itself did not contain immediately obvious passages which would absolutely prohibit owning slaves per se. We don’t have much evidence to suggest that the early church typically moved beyond the Pauline admonitions for slaves to obey masters, and for masters to treat slaves fairly. This makes especially conspicuous a sermon of the fourth-century Church Father Gregory of Nyssa, in which he began to criticize slavery as an institution. As Harper notes, this is a breathtaking departure since we have no other such extant criticisms of slavery “from the entire ancient world.” Although Gregory’s criticisms seem to have attracted little notice at the time, it was “no small distinction to be the earliest human to have left an argument for the basic injustice of slavery.” Quite a milestone! Gregory’s sermon is on Ecclesiastes, and details the sins of those who have become prideful because of their wealth. In the ancient world, such pride was often manifested in the owning and maltreatment of slaves. Gregory does not just indict the masters for abusing slaves, however. He rages against the “sheer arrogance of slave ownership” itself. As made by God, humans were naturally free beings, and slavery made a mockery of their natural state. Christian leaders made even more progress in their critique of prostitution, and the treatment of the poor. With regard to prostitution, Christian rulers helped to make many kinds of coerced sex illegal by the end of the fifth century, something that would have been unthinkable without Christian concepts of human dignity. Elsewhere I have described “equality by creation” as the most powerful concept to emerge from the American Revolution. But really, it is a concept with deeper roots in the Judaeo-Christian tradition. Many Christians in antiquity, and for centuries afterward, continued to accept practices like chattel slavery. But the spread of Christianity opened unheard-of possibilities for reform, based on the notion that we all stand equal before our Creator.

My area is 19th Century history. What is so surprising is that the same cities in the Levant are involved in much of the world's unrest, and have been so for as long as we have even had a notion of history. It seems that crossroads of the world is destined to suffer grief always.

There is a 1980s scifi tabletop game called Battletech which has a lore where invaders were also fighting among them too. Now I see where it could have been inspired. I love this video.

Battletec I remember like D&D but with a board Mechs and hit point sheets. Had to maneuver close to water to keep cool down.

The first place my mind always goes to is imagining how tough and masculine the members of the first crusade must have been. Particularly the 12,000 that made it to Jerusalem. Nowadays we regard the men who fought in WW2 as extremely tough. Can you imagine one of the First Crusaders? The life of a Medieval peasant was already brutal and full of PTSD. On top of that, these guys hacked and sliced their way across continents into a completely alien world, having to cannibalize children along the way in order to not die.

I watch many videos of this nature. One thing that I think would improve ALL OF THEM would be the inclusion of the 4-digit year, at ALL TIMES, in one corner of the screen, so that the viewer can remind himself which year this is taking place in again. For as many videos of this nature as I watch, I'm still amazingly bad at placing the decade or even the century of many major events of which I've watched numerous multi-hour-long videos on. In short, keeping a year posted in a corner at all times, would, in my strong opinion, drastically boost the educational effectiveness of these videos.

What's interesting about the crusader times is two-fold: 1) The Christian Crusaders were made up of factions and the various Arab and Turkic powers were made up of various factions. And they all fought each other and allied with different partners at different times, sometimes a Christian group and a Muslim group against some other Christian or Muslim group. It was not merely "Christians vs Muslims". Everyone was vying for political power (like usual, of course!). And then the Mongols finally arrived which threw an overwhelming monkey wrench into the mix. 2) As Tamim Ansary explains in his book, the Muslim world considered the Christian Crusader foray into the Holy Land as a relatively short lived blip on the great time line of history, and their main threats were other Muslim empires (remember there were Fatimids, Ayyubids, Abbasids, Seljuk Turks, other Turks, Mamluks in Egypt after the Fatimids and Ayyubids, and the most threatening bulldozer of empires of all.....the Mongols.
