Family Tree Details
Baldwin (III, King of Jerusalem 1143-1162) (b.1131 - d.1162)
When his father Fulk died, Baldwin became king of Jerusalem. But at only 13 years of age Baldwin was too young to rule unaided. He was made co-ruler of the Crusader state along side his mother Melisende.
Baldwin III was old enough to rule Jerusalem unaided and demanded that the control he shared with his mother was ended. This split the Crusader state and led to civil war.
Baldwin, the king of Jerusalem died. He was succeeded by his brother Amalric.
