Chapter Summary

Social tension between rich and poor did not ease once the battle with Kerbogha took place, but rather it found different expression. The key issue that now made manifest this social tension was that of whether the expedition was to continue to Jerusalem or not. The princes, wanting to avoid plague in Antioch and to consolidate their local gains, scattered throughout the region. Count Raymond arranged a conference with the other princes to negotiate the terms on which the expedition would continue. When the other princes departed, many iuvenes remained at Chastel-Rouge, 'on fire' to complete the journey to Jerusalem. Count Raymond, however, now allocated a significant number of his knights and footmen to garrison Ma'arra. As a result, the pauperes began to worry that the Christian forces would be diminished by the allocation of a garrison to every captured city between Antioch and Jerusalem.
