1093? We are at 1110!

1110 AD The Crusaders under Baldwin I besiege Beirut. The Genoese and Pisan ships blockade the harbour, Fatimid ships from Tyre and Sidon try in vain to break the blockade. The Fatimid governor flees by night through the Italian fleet to Cyprus. On May 13, Baldwin captures the city by assault. The Italians conduct a massacre among the inhabitants.

1111

yes! 4 ones!

The Donglin Academy, a Chinese educational institution, is established in Wuxi during the Northern Song Dynasty. (Wikipedia)

Battle of Shaizar: Sultan Muhammad I (Tapar) appoints Mawdud ibn Altuntash, Turkic governor (atabeg) of Mosul, to lead a Seljuk expedition against the Crusaders. The composite force includes Muslim contingents from Damascus, Diyarbakır, Ahlat and some Persian troops, headed by Bursuq ibn Bursuq from Hamadan. The Crusaders (16,000 men), led by King Baldwin I of Jerusalem, are cut off from their supplies, and within two weeks (due to constant Seljuk skirmishes) forced to fall back on Afamiya in northern Syria.

Other than that pretty boring except I got to do 1111

1114AD - Count Ramon Berenguer III of Barcelona, joins the expedition to the Balearic Islands. A Pisan and Catalan fleet (some 450 ships), supported by a large army, conquer Ibiza and Mallorca. They do gods work, and destroy the bases on the islands used by Moorish pirates to prey on Mediterranean shipping, for no doubt, pirates are well among the worst.

1115AD The Mixtec ruler Eight Deer Jaguar Claw (or 8 Deer) is defeated in battle and sacrificed by his brother-in law 4 Wind, at Tilantongo.

1116AD The Zirid ruler of Ifriqiya, Ali ibn Yahya, doing gods work, conquers the island of Jerba, then acting as an independent piratical republic.

1117AD The magnetic compass is first used for maritime navigation purposes during the Song Dynasty in China.

1118AD Peter Abelard and Héloïse d'Argenteuil have a child and marry secretly in Paris. Her uncle Fulbert has Abelard castrated, and both Abelard and Héloïse enter religious orders.

1119 AD Hugh de Payns founds the monastic order of the Knights Templar and becomes the first Grand Master. In association with Bernard of Clairvaux, a French abbot and religious leader, he creates the Latin Rule, the code of behaviour of the Order. The Templars get the primary task to protect the pilgrimage routes in Palestine. They will go down with a tremendous ado 188 years later.

1122 AD
Battle of Beroia: Emperor John II Komnenos transfers the Byzantine field army from Asia Minor (where it has been engaged against the Seljuk Turks) to the Balkans. The Pechenegs who have set up their camp (defended by a circular formation of wagons) near Beroia (modern Bulgaria) are defeated. John orders the Varangian Guard (some 480 men), the elite Palace Guard to hack their way through the Pecheneg circle of wagons, causing a general rout in their camp. Pecheneg survivors are taken captive and enlisted into the Byzantine army.

August 8 – A Venetian fleet under Doge Domenico Michiel with well over a hundred ships sets sail from Venice, carrying an army of around 15,000 men and siege-material. The fleet departs for Palestine – but the Venetians pause to attack Corfu (this in retaliation for the refusal of John II to renew exclusive trading privileges). For six months, throughout the winter of 1122–23, the Venetians lay siege to the Byzantine island.

Siege of Tbilisi: The Georgians led by King David IV ('the Builder') re-conquer the city of Tbilisi from the Emirate of Tbilisi after a 1-year siege. David makes it his capital and unifies the Georgian State.

1122 BC—The Zhou Dynasty was founded.

1131 AD The Knights Templars appear in the North-East of Spain and are receiving privileges from King Alfonso I. The Templars support him to regain land from the Almoravids. Alfonso grants them exemption of tax on a fifth of the wealth taken from the Muslims. The Templars found their first stronghold in Aragon. Their help will be so crucial in the fight against the Muslims that Spanish leaders will deny the accusations against Templars in 1307 and instead of sending them to burn after the Order is disbanded, they make the Knight part of the Knights of Santiago.
