Misc. Notes
The son of Bohemond I and Constance of France, he went from Apulia to Antioch in 1126. Antioch had been under the regency of Baldwin II of Jerusalem since 1119, when the previous prince, Roger, had been killed. Soon after his arrival in Antioch, Bohemond married Alice, the younger daughter of Baldwin II. After joining with Baldwin in an attack on Damascus (1129), he was slain on the northern frontier by a Muslim army. The local emir had his severed head embalmed and sent as a gift to the caliph.
