About Geoffrey de Boulogne, Duke of Lower Lorraine & Advocate of the Holy Sepulchre

GODFREY OF BOUILLON, ADVOCATE OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE

Godfrey of Bouillon (circa 1060 - July 18, 1100) was a medieval Frankish knight who was one of the leaders of the First Crusade, from 1096 until his death. He was the Lord of Bouillon, from which he took his byname, from 1076, and the Duke of Lower Lorraine from 1087. After the successful seige of Jerusalem in 1099, Godfrey became the first ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, although he refused the title "King", as he believed the true King of Jerusalem was Christ, preferring the title "Advocate of the Holy Sepulchre".
