Tancred (1072 – 1112)

Tancred became famous for his military achievements due the First Crusade. He was made Prince of Galilee after the establishment of the Kingdom of Jerusalem and was also the regent of Antioch between 1100 and 1103 when Bohemond I of Antioch was taken captive by the Muslims. He also took control of the County of Edessa when Baldwin II was captured by the Muslims in 1104. Tancred was forced to give up Edessa after Baldwin’s release in 1107 but one year later he was made regent of Antioch for the second time. After the death of Bohemond I of Antioch, Tancred acted as regent to Bohemond II until his death in 1112.
