Misc. Notes
Baldwin II was Duke of Burgundy and a Knight of the Order of St. John. His
sister, Maud de Rethel, married Eudes (Chatelain) de Vitry - their son
Gauthier (d. 1153) became Count of Rethel.

He was crowned King of Jerusalem in place of his deceased cousin, "Baldwin left no children and had not designated an
heir. The barons again met and again chose the Count of Edessa, another Baldwin (of Le Bourg). Baldwin II was cousin to Baldwin I
and was the last of the greater princes of the First Crusade. He was crowned on Easter Sunday."
