Books about the kings of Jerusalem

Does anyone know any (e) book distinctly about the rulers of Jerusalem?I once had an interesting booklet from the library on the crusades,but it wasn't wery detailed.

It is often useful to search Wikipedia as a starting-point.
The article on the Kingdom of Jerusalem has a booklist at the end.

The classic text on this would be Flavius Josephus _Antiquities of the Jews_.

Available from Project Gutenberg, but w/o the classic old engravings:

William
(who really should find the time to scan the images in his copy)

No, it wouldn't be. The "Kingdom of Jerusalem" was established in 1099 following the 1st Crusade and lasted for around 200 years. We're NOT talking about ancient Israel/Judea.

I've just consulted a medieval historian over lunch.
There isn't one book about the kings. And there were a number of Queens too.
Here's a list and brief account, from Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_of_Jerusalem


Try one of these to read more:
Bernard Hamilton, "Women in the Crusader States: The Queens of Jerusalem", in Medieval Women, edited by Derek Baker. Ecclesiastical History Society, 1978
Bernard Hamilton, The Leper King and his Heirs: Baldwin IV and the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem (Cambridge University Press, 2000).
Zehava Jacoby, “The Tomb of Baldwin V, King of Jerusalem (1185-1186) and the Workshop of the Temple Area”, in Gesta, 18 (1979), pp. 3-14.
Steven Runciman, A History of the Crusades, vol. II: The Kingdom of Jerusalem (Cambridge University

A primary source:
William of Tyre, A History of Deeds Done Beyond the Sea. E. A. Babcock and A. C. Krey, trans. (Columbia University Press, 1943).

Well, here's something to start with:

You'll need Latin for the western sources, Greek for the Byzantine ones, and Arabic for the Saracen and Islamic sources. Have fun.

HarryT, thanks for the correction. I missed the Crusades aspect.

No problem! Completely agree with you about Josephus for the ancient history; he's a wonderful writer.
