Godfrey of Bouillon Meets Remnants of Hermit's Army

Godfrey of Bouillon Meets Remnants of Hermit's Army

En route to Jerusalem, Godfrey of Bouillon (c. 1060-1100) meets remnants of an army led by Peter the Hermit.  The survivors tell Godfrey and his men how their colleagues had been massacred.

Gustave Dore created 100 drawings illustrating the Crusades.  This one - image 11 - depicts the encounter between Godfrey and those survivors.  It appears at page 53 of Story of the Crusades, by James P. Boyd.  There, the caption reads:

Godfrey Meeting the Remnant of Peter the Hermit's Army.
