1095: Pope Urban II declares the First Crusade at the Council of Clermont in France. The primary goal of the First Crusade was responding to an appeal from Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos for help in repelling invading Turks. However, the prime objective soon became the Christian reconquest of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, which was accomplished in July 1099.
