Fulcherius Carnoixensis

Fulcherius Carnoixensis (Faucher de Chartres), a mediaeval French priest and historian, was born at Chartres in 1059, and died in 1127 at Jerusalem, whither he had gone as the first Crusade (1096) as chaplain to Baldwin, whom he followed in all his expeditions. His Histoire de Jerusalem, continued to the year of his death, embraces the greater part of the events of the Crusade from the couicil at Clermont (1095), and is especially important as being a record of such facts only as himself or other eye-witnesses could verify. It was published by Bongars in Recueil des Historiens de la Croisade, and in a fuller and corected form by Duchesne in Historiens de France (volume 4), and in the Historiens de Croisades published by the Academy of Inscriptions and Belles-Lettres. — Hoefer, Nouv.
