June - Antioch falls to crusader army but the citadel remains in Muslim hands.
June 14th. Peter the Hermit "discovers" the Holy lance in the ruins of Antioch. Spurred on by religious fanaticism the Crusaders destroy a final relief army of Seljuks under the command of Kur Bugha of Mosul. A day later the citadel of Antioch surrenders & every man, woman & child is put to the sword by hysterical Christian soldiers who claimed an Army of Angels helped them win the battle against Kur Bugha.
