Raymond of Aguilers

   Historian of the First Crusade (q.v.) who participated in the First Crusade as chaplain of Raymond of Toulouse (q.v.). His work, entitled Historia Francorum qui ceperunt Iherusalem (History of the Franks Who Captured Jerusalem), covers the years 1095-1099, is one of the best sources for the later part of the Crusade, from the capture of Antioch (q.v.) onward. He is clearly antagonistic toward the Byzantines.
