Godfrey of Bouillon (18 September 1060 – 18 July 1100) was a medieval Frankish knight who was one of the leaders of theFirst Crusade from 1096 until his death. He was the Lord of Bouillon, from which he took his byname, from 1076 and theDuke of Lower Lorraine from 1087. After the successful siege of Jerusalem in 1099, Godfrey became the first ruler of theKingdom of Jerusalem, although he refused the title "King"; as he believed that the true King of Jerusalem was Christ; preferring the title of "Advocate of the Holy Sepulchre".

The Crusades were a series of religiously sanctioned military campaigns waged by much of Latin Christian Europe, particularly the Franks of France and the Holy Roman Empire during the 11th to 15th century. Each coin depicting a unique scene from that crusade and the most important commander/leader in that crusade. All finished in Antique making this series a unique piece of history
