    • From European History: 1088-1228 edited by Elizabeth Missing Sewell, p. 219:

      Baldwin II., one of the few survivors of the First Crusade, had by this time reached old age. He had no son to succeed him; and his young daughter, Melisende, was unmarried. Desirous to provide against future difficulties, Baldwin proposed to Foulques, Count of Anjou, a knight who had already distinguished himself, to marry Melisende, and succeed to that perilous dignity, the Crusaders' throne. Foulques consented, and the marriage was solemnized in 1131. Baldwin died shortly after, having reigned twelve years.

      Melisende was more than twenty years younger than Fouleques, and proved but an indifferent helpmate, for she was continually plotting and intriguing against her husband. The domestic felicity of the King must have been far from perfect, but his political position was certainly better than that of his predecessors.
