Creating this campaignbox took some thought. It was needed to fill the gap between the First and Second Crusades. I started it with Melitene in 1100 so it wouldn't overlap with the First Crusade campaignbox. It ends in 1147 with second Dorylaeum which is an awkward place, though that action was definitely fought between Crusaders and Seljuks. That was also the year of the Second Crusade, which has its own campaignbox. Marj es-Suffar was 1126. Soon after that time the Seljuks receded and the Zengids started to become the major threat. So I left out Edessa and Bosra which might otherwise be included. Djmaschek (talk) 05:22, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
